Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout! Yummmm..

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout! Yummmm..

Here's the Double Chocolate Oatmeal stout that some of you had a sample of at Gary's house for the Christmas exchange. I really liked this recipe. I got it off homebrewtalk, and guess its called the Double chocolate Oatmeal Snout lol. Thought it was a little light on the roasted malts, and I would say it would be more like a porter, but the difference between stouts and porters is a whole other topic of debate:-) Maybe that's why they called it a Snout?

The recipe is for a partial grain mash. If you have brewing software its easy to punch in all the ingredients except for the LME, then add pale malt to achieve the estamated original gravity of the recipe.

I used 6oz of cocoa Camino cocoa (The good stuff). 6oz was plenty. Original recipe called for fat free cocoa. Fat free cocoa dissolves easier into the kettle. I didn't have a problem dissolving the cocoa with fat in it. As well, the cocoa Camino brand is dutch processed, which is said to be mellower than other cocoa. It won't be as harsh.

The vanilla bean I chopped up and soaked in a bit of vodka overnight. Then added like a dry hop.

Enjoy!

Did you actually use the LME, or substitute grain?

I thought it was leaning towards a porter as well, as the oats really smooth out the roast. Very rich and very good!

I used all grain Derek. I might try it again here soon, and experiment by changing things up with the roasted malts. It certainly surprised me how much I enjoyed it. I really didn't think I was going to like it as much as I did lol. Will be a go to recipe for sure!
