Oatmeal Cream Stout
Source: Michael Middleton
Recipe added: 06/08/97
You must try this recipe. I use pale malt extract, so that I can better control the roasted flavors. And this has an excellent chocolaty roasted flavor to it. The oatmeal lends itself to a rich frothy head, and the lactose smoothes out the finish.
This was only my 2nd batch after a long layoff, and it's my own recipe. If I do it again, I will perhaps prepare the oatmeal prior to adding it to the boil. Otherwise, I'm quite satisfied with the results. Even my fiancee loves the stuff.
