Well I mailed for a recipe to emulate a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout.
No body had one, I guess.
This is what I finally came up with after mucho comparisonof mucho notes.
Broglio's Quaker Stout
6# Dry Amber Malt
1# Crystal Malt
5# Roasted Barley
1# Quaker Oats
1oz. Eroica Hops (Boiling)
1oz. Kent Goldings (Finishing)
2pks. EDME dry yeast

In two gallons of cold water. Add, Crystal, Barley and Oatmeal. Steap
until water comes to boil. Sparge with about 1 gallon of hot water.
Add Dry Amber Malt. Bring to boil, add Eroica Hops, boil 45 minutes.
Last 5 minutes of boil add Kent Goldings.
I cooled the wort from a boil to 75 degrees in about 15 minutes,
I then transfered to primary, pitched the yeast, had a homebrew, and waited,
patiently.....
The starting SG was recorded with a beer meter, since traded for a
real SG meter, estimated alcohol % of 6%.
I bottled on 12/11.
Results:
Well, something happened to the carbonation stage, as it is very
lightly carbonated.
That I can live with.
Taste test......
Needs more hops, somewhat sweet initial taste, with a hint of coffee?
Could be a little more bitter. Smooth aftertaste. Not bad I think.
The weekend of the 13th I will be attending a meeting with the local
beer club, I will save a bottle for their perusal and report the
"Professional" results.
Overall though I give t a thumbs up!!
