Ollie's Oatmeal Cream Stout

Racked to secondary this morning.  Gravity reading of 1.030, high due to the lactose sugar, but the original gravity was 1.074, so it is at 5.77% ABV.  The flavor profile is good, roasty and smooth with a finish of chocolatey bitterness.  This beer will require a little longer aging to balance out but should be quite tasty!  A week or two in secondary, then into bottles.
Cheers!

Ollie's Oatmeal Cream Stout

Ahh, production day.  It's raining and around 60 degrees or so.  Great day for brewing.  Mashed at 155 F, and does this batch smell awesome!  Aromas of deep roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate.  Deep brown/black in color.  Flavors of sweet roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate, smooth on the palate, and complex, rich flavor.  Starting gravity of 1.074 with the addition of lactose.  Update in a week.
Cheers!

Ollie's Oatmeal Cream Stout

On Wendesday 9/12/12 I will be brewing a batch of Ollie's Oatmeal Cream Stout.  I love Oatmeal Stout and Milk or Cream Stout, so why not do both in one batch!  Yum!  I'll keep you posted on the specifics tomorrow.
Cheers!
