Famed beer writer Michael Jackson is credited with reviving this nearly forgotten old English classic when he wrote about it in 1977. He describes these ebony potables as "firm, smooth, silky, [with] a hint of nuttiness in their complex of coffee, chocolate and roast flavors." If we could describe our Oatmeal Stout more eloquently, we'd be the ones getting paid to drink the best beers in the world.

5.0 / 5.02 Reviewsmy go to kitI feel like this is the perfect kit for the stout lover. the first batch of beer I ever made was 4 years ago and it was this kit, since then I have brewed this beer several times and I have put it on nitro once. its an easy drinking beer that I will have on tap all winter long, I love getting non-stout drinkers to try this beer because 9 out of 10 end up asking for more. good body, I know others have added a pound of base malt for a bigger mouth feel but I feel is it good the way it is, a tan head and dark in the glass, smooth coffee and toasted notes, with just enough bitterness to balance it out... session beer?October 5, 2015
Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 23 answerswhat is the abv?BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. We purposely do not put the ABV on our kits, because people can sometimes get upset if they didn't get that number, even if the beer tastes great. However, you can figure it out by the style of yeast you plan on using and it's attenuation rates of that particular yeast. Cheers!When brewing this kit do you need to add additional minerals? I have only done extract kits so far and this will be my first all grain brew.BEST ANSWER: Hi, I've brewed this recipe a couple times; I add potassium metabisulfate to remove any Cloramines in my house water; Clorine will evaporate out after water stands a bit. It's really only all about YOUR water. You might want to use some gypsum to soften the water ala Burton Water Salts - to make it a bit more like London water. You should not need additional minerals, but you might want some - either way: Relax, Don't Worry and Have a Homebrew! It will be good, it's yours! :Dwhat are the additinal equiptment needed?BEST ANSWER: I would recommend an All Grain brewing system, 8 gal Kettle, and wort chiller. You would then just need a carboy and other basic brewing supplies.The instructions are a little unclear, is there a second racking after 2 weeks? With bottling at 4 weeks?BEST ANSWER: Move to secondary fermentor after one to two weeks. Make sure krausen has fallen to the bottle of the fermentor before transferring to secondary. You can bottle after two weeks in secondary. I have brewed this many times and it has always been delicious.
