I’m pretty sure something… yep, something just froze and fell off

I go down to Florida for a couple of days and this is what I get when I come back. Good googalamoogalie it’s cold! Which gives me a great idea for the holiday season…brewing up a lovely, smooth, and subtly warming seasostoutnal oatmeal stout. We have not brewed this particular beer since last year and are looking foward to brewing it tomorrow night and having it ready for any pending Christmas/New Years parties.

We have a couple of goals we would love to accomplish in this beer; Give a heavier and creamy mouthfeel, a rounded roasted barley character, and a very smooth and lingering finish surrounded by sublte coffee aromas. We’ll age 4-5 weeks  and lightly carbonate, keeping close to the British Ale tradition of lower carbonation. This will accentuate the desired flavors in the beer rather than be masked by a spritzy fizz.

Enough of my rambling about a beer that won’t be ready for a month. We have beer to drink now! Beer tastings are every Wednesday as we brew, and I will brag that last Wednesday was incredible thanks to our friends. Come out and join us because a good beer is better with friends and tales never lose in the telling!
