    I brewed a 10l batch of this in February and bottled it in March. I've been trying it for the last couple of weeks. This is by far the best beer I've brewed. Thanks for the recipe BrannBrew! 20180406_190919.jpg

    Many thanks for the vote of confidence. Considering it was a recipe I threw together from various parts of others I was really chuffed with it and it's a house favourite. Will be brewing this again this year at some point after I've finished brewing for a friends wedding.

    I had just recently put together a recipe for a oatmeal/milk stout and have just seen yours, our recipes are very very similar, however seeing as how we both seem to like to invent or cobble together recipes that's not much of a surprise. There are a couple of things you had added that I didn't but still close. I am aiming for a 25 litre batch but the percentages of grain in yours and mine are still almost spot on too.

    Did you know what your IBU's were and what colour (EBC) it worked out at, would help me in a final check before I decide to brew it, thanks.

    Brilliant thanks, my IBu's are at 27 and SRM is 32 when I convert it back from EBC so quite similar, am going with all Sorachi in the boil if I make it as they need using up. Looks an absolute belter too
