  • 1 lb oatmeal
  • 1 cup brown sugar

directions

  • Use a very big (stainless steel or enameled) pot for this, because you need to let the malt work on the starches and sugars while gradually increasing the temperature.
  • Put the oatmeal and the hops in separate cloth bags.
  • Bring 2 gallons of water to a boil, turn off the heat, add the oatmeal and let it steep for 1 hour.
  • Remove the oatmeal and dissolve all the malt sugar and molasses, and add the bag of hops.
  • Bring this wort to near boiling temperature and simmer it for 1 hour (longer if convenient).
  • Bring the wort to a rolling boil (BE CAREFUL, it will froth up briefly when breakpoint is reached!!).
  • Stir down or sprinkle with cool water to help it settle down to a boil.
  • Continue the rolling boil for 1/2 hour, then pour the wort into the primary fermentor (add enough boiling water to the wort to reach the 5 gallon mark on your fermentor).
  • Add the yeast when the wort has cooled.
  • After going through the primary and secondary fermentation stages, add the priming sugar about 3 hours before bottling.
