Batch 62 Bottled- Big Fat Oatmeal Stout

Saturday night I finally got around to bottling my beer. I had help from some of my kids. So, before I could begin I had to clean the kitchen- can’t have an unclean environment when bottling beer! Bottles got bleached, then sanitized as I didn’t know what could have been in my bottles given how …

Big Fat Oatmeal Stout

Bottled Oatmeal Stout- Batch 40

Bottled the stout tonight after a 2 hour delay, thanks to uncontrollable circumstances.  Final gravity came to 1.020 for an alcohol percent of 5.00% even.  Got 94 12oz bottles and two 22oz bottles out of it.  Should be ready to drink by my party on the 15th.  Looking forward to it.

Last week my friend Mike and I went to Steinbart’s to check it out, as he’s never been there before.  Of course, I can’t walk in there without getting something, so we left there with ingredients to make an oatmeal stout. Now, I’ve made this particular stout before, and it turned out awesome!  This time, …

A Terrific Compliment

Had a friend and co-worker make this statement about my Oatmeal Stout: Probably some of the best stuff I’ve had in quite a while. I would buy that brand of oatmeal all day long! Seriously, it was right up my alley in so many ways…in fact…do you have enough stored to fill a growler or …
