Dunkel"rye"zen

Dunkel"rye"zen boiling.  Smells fantastic!  Just dropped in the Tettnanger hops and my mouth is watering already! 
Target gravity of 1.052:  Actual : 1.052
Right on target!  Fermentis Safbrew WB-06 yeast is already making bubbles in the airlock after just a few hours!  Can't wait to taste this one! 
Prosit! (Cheers!)

Dunkel"rye"zen

O.k.  first attempt at this style.  I've enjoyed a few good ones, so I decided to try one on my own and spice it up a little more with rye malt.  Just a little to add some flavor and a little body.   
I'll be brewing in the a.m. on 10/24/12, with the forecast calling for rain and a temperature drop.  Projected Starting Gravity of 1.052.  More to follow on my progress.

Ollie's Oatmeal Cream Stout, Bottled

Final Gravity 1.030 with ABV of 5.7%.  Flavor is good, chocolatey, roasty, smooth, thick, and semi-sweet, should be a great sweet/oatmeal stout!  Looking forward to this one once it is carbonated!  Ended up with 4.25 gallons at bottling producing 43 bottles.
Cheers!
