With all the hype on television about oatmeal lowering cholestrol, I wonder if I should be drinking this for breakfast instead of eating oatmeal?


  • 8 pounds, British amber extract
  • 1/2 pound, black patent malt
  • 1/2 pound, roasted barley
  • 1/2 pound, chocolate malt
  • 1 pound, steel cut oats
  • 2 ounces, Eroica hops (boil)
  • 1 ounce, Fuggles hops (finish)
  • Whitbread ale yeast
  • 1/2 cup, corn sugar (priming)


Crack grains using a rolling pin.Add grain and oats to 2 gallons cold water.
Bring to boil. Strain out grains. Add extract and Eroica hops. Boil about 1 hour. Add Fuggles and boil an additional 2 minutes. Steep 15 minutes. Sparge through sieve over ice. Mix. Rack to 7-gallon carboy and pitch yeast. Bottle when fermentation is complete (about 1 week).
