Last B.O.O.S.

No not bOObs, Bourbon Oaked Oatmeal Stout, and I just enjoyed the last one.

Bourbon Oaked Oatmeal Stout

I wanted something different to drink but not too fancy, so I poked around in the cellar to see what I could enjoy but not miss per say.  What I came up with was one of my homebrews from the Oatmeal Stout Experiment from February/March of ’07. It was the Bourbon Oaked Oatmeal Stout and it was creamy and mellow and delicious. I did not pick up on any negative affects in flavor (such as spoilage or oxidation), though I did think that both the bourbon and oak flavors had mellowed. I still have two beers left from this batch, two Coffee Oatmeal Stouts (breakfast stouts) that I plan on sharing with Heather K. sometime soon. I think I should do another five way split this year, any suggestions? Different dry-hops, different yeast strains?

    different yeast strains

    I like that idea! That will really bring out some interesting variations.

    You know, if you borrowed a little equipment you could brew 20 gallons of something and split it 4 ways (5 gallons each)… or split it 20 ways (1 gallon each). I’d love to see the last one – you’d be flipping nuts…

    A 20 way split would be sick! And a huge pain in the balls too.
