Spotted some Firestone Walker at the store and was inspired to use the rest of my flaked oats for a homebrew. 13C is the BJCP category for Oatmeal Stout and so far my beer falls within the stats.
I am using some East Kent Goldings for hopping and Maris Otter for the base malt. Unfortunately it wasn’t worth an hour of driving to get some British yeast, so I’ll use the US-05 that I’ve got.
Pretty easy to spot the missing ingredient!
In the process of studying for my Certified Cicerone® exam I started learning BJCP style guidelines the best way I knew how: By drinking them! Whether it was visiting the German beer bar down the road, or sulking out of the grocery store carrying some canned American Lite Lager, I got firsthand experience and started to get some funny shots along the way. I will continue to add to (and improve upon) this project along the way. To open it up, here’s 1A, 1B, 1C.
