Blackbeard Oatmeal Stout Update

When I moved my stout from primary to secondary fermentation, the gravity had dropped from 1.050 to 1.020. Not quite what I wanted, so hopefully secondary will keep the process going.

I’m skeptical however, since below the layer of yeast trub was a dark layer of settled malt sediments. It was kind of pretty, but I fear it may have weakened my beer. So far its good, but a little sweet.

Log Away

Moveable Type seems to be functioning properly now. There’s no way to change the archive files from html to php, so I had to do some not so great things with the .htaccess file. It works now, and hopefully Scott will be albe to try it out soon.

Blackbeard Oatmeal Stout

I just brewed an Oatmeal stout that was my own recipe. I’m still somewhat concerned because the OG was only 1.050, but I’m hoping it was due to malt settling. Its a beautiful color, but we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out. I’ll add the recipe once I make sure its worth repeating.
