Ye Ole Oat Stout

Source: Robert Grier
Recipe added: 09/18/04

I used a 6.5 gallon primary fermenter and removed the lid and covered it with a cloth for a day and a half then replaced the lid. The first batch blew the lid off after the air lock became clogged. This beer ferments real fast and was ready for consumption at the 6 week mark, I thought that was remarkable considering the alc content. Very smooth and rich a sipping beer primed very light to keep it that way
