My notes on it were that it was clean, smooth, and hoppy. The hops
overwhelmed any oat flavor, but the oats may have added to the
smoothness. Reduce the hopping level by 1/2. Also, not enough roasted
barley "bite". Increase RB from 1/3 oz. to 1/2 oz. at least, maybe 2/3
oz. would be best. There was also 1/2 oz. of crystal used.
- 3 pounds, English 2-row pale malt
- 3.3 pounds, of dark extract

- 1 ounce, of Cascade leaf hops (AU=5)

Mash pale malt and steel cut oats in 5 quarts of water. Sparge with 2
1/4 English 2-row pale malt, 1 lb. of steel cut oats, mashed in 5 qts.
Added dark extract and dark DME to the wort and boiled with 2 oz. of
Centennial leaf hops (AU=11.1, total=22.2 WHOOPS!) Good thing I like
hops. Finished with 1 oz. of Cascade leaf hops. (AU=5) Pitched Wyeast
Irish Ale yeast starter (#1084?), took 24 hrs. for active ferment.
