Prescription Stout

Source: Dave Wressell
Recipe added: 11/10/00

Incredible stout after "only" 2 weeks in the bottle. Very dark but very clean and clear looking. More of a sweet stout, with a fine head that lasts the entire pint. This was the 2nd time I made this recipe, but the first time I used Oatmeal. (Doctor said I needed more fiber in my diet, thus the name of this brew.) 2 pints and you'll be slurring your words. Prost!

Using a 20Qt pot, I did the following: Steep grains in about 3 gallons of water up until boiling point. Remove grains prior to boil. Once boiling starts, put in extract and the Chinook hops for 60 minutes. Put in the Cascade hops for the last 2 minutes of the boil. (Irish moss as directed on container for last 15 minutes of boil) Add water to make up 5 gallons in primary fermenter, cool, then pitch yeast. Rack after 1 week to secondary, then bottle after one week more.
