Brewing another 5ish gallon beer to work on brewing and calculations on the Foundry. Have not brewed Oatmeal Stout for a while so thinking it might be nice to have a stout option at the Bug Boil. Will add coffee to secondary. Have been wanting to try that.

OYL-005 Irish Ale
Ireland’s storied stout is thought to be balanced by this dry, crisp, lightly fruity, versatile and powerful strain. A good fermenter with reliable, average flocculation (some diacetyl possible), and a hint of fruit at the lowest recommended temperatures, which increases in complexity at higher temperatures (64°F+). Successful in dark and high gravity beers. Sláinte!
• OG – 1.059
• FG – 1.016
• ABV – 5.6%
• SRM – 28
• IBU – 35
Strike 6.5 gallons @ 162˚. With Flaked Oats way too thick. Added .5 gallon for total strike 7 gallons. Hold @ 155˚ for 60 minutes.
Sparge with 2ish gallons. Collecetd 7.75 gallons (after drips from mash basket added to kettle). Pre boil gravity = 1.050. Predicted 1.054.
Plenty of volume so boiled about 90 minutes. Hops in mesh bags per above hop bill.
Re-circ/whirlpool was troublesome. I think one of the hop sacks was pulled into the opening for the dip tube. Go back to the screen?
Chill went fast. got down to 70˚
Transfered to FastFermnet. Had to dump about .25 gallon to make room for starter.
After starter, 7 gallons in fermenter.
OG = 1.057 – missed it by (_) much.
Color is purposely lighter than my past stouts. Wanted a deep rich brown color. Looks like what I wanted. I like the flavors the Carabohemian produce din the Dark Czech Lager so using up what I have left in this instead if a Caramel/Crystal of some sort.
