Stout inspiration required!

PostPosted: Thu Nov 03, 2016 09:26

Hello, this is my first post to the forum and it certainly won't be my last. Plenty of interesting discussions on here.

I am looking to brew a stout in time for christmas, but I am lacking inspiration for what style or flavours to go for.

For the style I am thinking possibly an Oatmeal or Milk stout. The possible flavours I have in mind are: Chocolate, Coffee, Caramel, Pecan, Vanilla, Hazelnut.

Does anybody have any alternative flavour ideas that would go well in an Oatmeal or Milk stout?

I appreciate any of your advice and help!

You get good chocolate and coffee notes from a normal oatmeal stout brew imo. If you wanted more obvious flavours, you could add Cacau nibs and coffee beans in the secondary.

Looks good. Do you know how many IBU's that works out at?

Oatmeal with the dark malts cold steeped overnight is my ideal beer. I'm a big fan of adding oak chips soaked in whisky too. Around 2g/L :)

I've just done a coffee milk stout. Made a reliable milk stout then added cold steeped coffee after 5 days.

On the contrary it can be a good style to drink young Imo depending on whether you want it to mellow or if you'd rather drink fresh with more esters, hop aroma and rawer malt flavours. Both are good, just put those strong ones away!

I made a 5.5% oatmeal stout recently and it was great to drink young. In fact, I've only got about ten bottles left.
