The original recipe calls for an equal amount of barley and flaked oats as well as London Fog yeast. With the Hothead yeast I have on hand, the estimated abv shot up into the upper 7% range, which is a bit higher than I was wanting because I'm afraid of the alcohol flavor coming through over the hops. So, I reduced the amount of flaked oats to an even 1# to drop the abv into the mid 6% range to hopefully achieve balance. This being a 1 gallon recipe, it's easy to play around with and not worry about having 5 gallons or more of a beer you are unsatisfied with. If using extract in place of the grains, this will be a 30 minute brew since the LME/DME is already boiled and sanitized from the malters, it just needs dissolved completely.
