Hello there, brewers. I want to make my first ever stout (mainly for a friend, because I'm not usually a huge fan of the style). I found this recipe: https://beerandbrewing.com/make-your-best-oatmeal-stout/ It sounds quite nice and well balanced (I particularly liked the idea of not letting the roastiness and bitterness take over everything). However, I still want the beer to be mainly bitter, not bitter-sweet or anything (I want some malty-nutty-caramelly sweetness for balance, but bitterness should be the main taste in this beer). That said - I still agree with the idea of low IBU, for the same reasoning laid out in the link above. Also, I'm not sure that I like the idea of having berry flavors from the yeast. This makes me think maybe I should use another strain. Do you think I could use Nottingham or S-04 here (that would be great, also because I have those harvested from past batches), or anything else you'd recommend? (I don't want the beer to be completely dry, but mostly dry, for sure) I was also thinking of adding maybe another half pound or a pound of oats - I want the beer to be a smooth as it could be (considering nitro isn't an option). Any reason why I shouldn't do that? Finally, I want the beer to be as opaque as possible, so if you have any recommendations (other than not cold-crashing) - I'd be interested in those.
