- Who doesn't love oatmeal stout? It's impossible not to love oatmeal stout. Full-bodied with a silken texture and a gentler roast profile than their Irish and American cousins, this ebony ale is rich and substantial. Almost hidden under strong notes of dark chocolate, figs, and light-roast coffee you'll find a subtle nutty, grainy flavor from flaked oats (made possible by the partial-mash technique). A long-lasting raft of beige foam floats on the jet-colored pint and laces the glass all the way down. This stout is wonderful by itself, but if you're looking for a dessert beer pair it up against a flourless chocolate cake, truffles, or even a raspberry tart.
This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.

- 4.8 / 5.048 ReviewsGreat Brew!Smooth and creamy with a hint of sweetness. I added 1/2 cup of oatmeal because I love the mouth feel oatmeal imparts. Great brew.July 27, 2016Very Good BaseI used this kit as a base for a pumpkin stout and was extremely pleased. After brewing it sat in primary for about 4-6 weeks before racking to secondary. Additional elements we added were: lactose, vanilla bean and pure vanilla extract (a bean which was soaked in vodka for months and a measure of the vodka went in during secondary), plus about 8-10 lbs of fresh baked pumpkin out of the garden. It was almost 3 months ago when we first brewed it and we just opened the first bottle today, excellent! The base is perfect to carry plenty of additional flavor elements and is very smooth. A few bottles will definitely be left to sit and age for a while as it makes a nice abv beer (ours ended in the 7 - 7.5 abv range). Cheers!October 1, 2012Best of the bestThis was brew number six for me and my second partial mash. The OG came in at 1.06 and the FGl was 1.015 for a 5.9% ABV stout. Three weeks primary and one week kegged this beer was delicious and will know be the stout I keep on tap. Just ordered another kit along with the AG version kit to do a 10 gallon batch which will lean slighter further to AG.CheersFebruary 17, 2015Oatmeal Stout Partial Mash KitThis kit came out great. I added cold brewed coffee to it to make an oatmeal coffee stout. I didnt have any issues whatso ever during or after the brewing process.April 3, 2016Oatmeal stout kitI was amazed at the amount of grain there was in the kit, I can't recall ever steeping so much mash in a kit, so I'm excited to get to the finished product.October 8, 2016Oatmeal Stout partial mash kit.I tasted it this week. Good beer. Seems a bit week on the carbonation—borderline flat, but great flavor and body.November 30, 2015Best Brew EverI am fairly new to home-brewing, but have already found a favorite. This is a 10/10 and I will always keep a one of the kegs in my kegerator filled with Oatmeal Stout!!January 10, 2016excellentI can not stop drinking this..it is the best beer I have ever had. It has only been a week after bottling, but man, this is good beer. I think I am a fan of oats? I love smooth beer............like guinness? This beer is unreal, I can not believe I made it. Will do this again, & again & again................May 24, 2013Kind of a sleeper.I know it's weird to call a kit with 30+ positive reviews a "sleeper," but I rarely see this one mentioned anywhere. It's not even in the catalogs (lately, at least), and doesn't have the hyped-up descriptions you see on other kits. Anyway, I've been really happy with how this turned out -- tastes great, the partial mash process was easy to understand and fun, and it's a good lower-priced option at a time when kits are getting more expensive. Definitely give it a shot. This and the equally simple/equally good Chinook IPA are my favorite NB kits.May 1, 2014flavorful session stout15th brew, 1st review.Dark and rich, this brew starts out with warm chocolate notes followed by dark fruit; definitely plums, and finishes with a mild coffee flavor. Head is thick and creamy, and laces the glass to the end.Best brew to date.August 25, 2015
- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 9 answersWhat is the target FG for this beer. My OG was 1.046.BEST ANSWER: 1.013 or so would be about right, give or take a few points. That would work out to about 4.3 % ABV. - Mike W, Northern BrewerIn step 10 of the directions, what are you considering "normal boiling volume"? full 5 gal?BEST ANSWER: I use 2.5 gallons as my normal boiling volumeI bought the Partial Mash Oatmeal Stout Kit a while back, and I lost the directions for brewing it. So I have been sitting on this kit and really want to brew it. Is there a way that I can get the directions for brewing it on the web site? If not, can they be emailed to me?BEST ANSWER: Hello Josh,
Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! All of the directions for our kits can be found under the additional information tab on the product description page. http://www.northernbrewer.com/documentation/beerkits/PM-OatmealStout.pdf I hope that this helps!Can this recipe (or any other 5 gallon) be adjusted for the one gallon small batch?BEST ANSWER: It would be difficult as a kit, because you would need only 1/5 of the malt that comes in the bottle. However, if you have a local brew supply store & are handy with math it would be possible.I'm curious about the oatmeal stout directions. #22 is a repeat of part of what is written at the end of #21. Also at about this point most other directions I've used refer to racking to the secondary for the next couple weeks. Is something omitted in the directions or is this stout suppose to continue the full month in the primary?BEST ANSWER: I believe there is typo there. You will want to ferment in primary for 2 weeks, rack into secondary, and ferment for 2 additional weeks.
