Empty carboys should be filled with love.
So it looks like there will be a brewing of jlervine's double chocolate oatmeal stout sometime during the weekend of December 20. We haven't set a hard date yet, so if you're interested in being part of the project, make your voice heard. Beer Brewing Monkeys, ARISE!

And, just to make things interesting, maybe we can do a tasting as well? I've a small assortment I'd be willing to donate to the cause.

Sweet.

The date might be awkward, being the weekend 'afore Giftmas and all, so the tasting might have to wait. Seems Dirty and V can both make that Saturday, though, so one way or another, the brewing will happen.

My big decision right now is whether I'll bottle the Old Ale that weekend too, or if I'll rack it and stick it under the eaves for a couple of weeks' conditioning. The Steam gets bottled on the 18th.

There's only one way to find out.

Unfortunately, few of my arty endeavors seem to be of the instant gratification sort, so we'd be looking at about a month before a finished product.

I read some stuff, and i think we should consider thowing some rolled oats in it to cream it up and smooth it out.

Aww Yeah!

Re: oo oooo

Jeez, check THE LINK already. ;)

The recipe that intrigued me calls for toasted oats and malto-dextrine, so I'm guessing that it's something along the lines of what you're craving.

Ninjas? Perhaps. I'm thinking of this as a warm-up for the Special Chocolate Brownie Stout project.

Oh, yay! I'm finally going to be in town at the same time as you brew! (My flight arrives sometime on Saturday, 12/20 - I can't remember when off the top of my head. I'll let you know!)
