Brewed an oatmeal stout today, as planned.  Three pounds of quick oats in the mash, along with some crystal, roasted barley and chocolate malts, using Maris Otter for the base.  Original gravity of 1.056 was on target, pitched with dry English ale and California yeasts from White Labs.  After the brew Steve and I went on a search for some Lagavulin whisky, to be the primings for our year-old barley wine.  At 12.5% ABV before the addition of the whisky, it’s going to be quite a strong ale!  A tasting report will be forthcoming following tapping on 1 November, in celebration of the eight year anniversary of Boathouse Brewery.
