For Memorial Day, my friend Nathanial and I are brewing up a 10-gallon batch of Oatmeal Nut Brown. Inspired by a recipe from Radical Brewing, we had to make a few tweaks based on raw material availability and our own radicalness.
For those interested in following along, here’s the recipe: (keep in mind, this is 10-gallons)
17 lbs. Munton’s Maris Otter
6 lbs. Castle Belgian biscuit malt
1 lb. Fawcett brown malt
1/2 lb. Belgian Special-B
2 lbs. toasted oats
2 cups toasted, ground walnuts
2 lbs. dark brown sugar
1.5 oz. Cascade (90 min)
1 oz. Cascade (15 min)
Dash of vanilla (5 min)
Stick of cinnamon (5 min)
Yeast (a different one for each 5-gallon carboy)
British Ale Yeast – Wyeast 1098
British Ale II Yeast – Wyeast 1335

How much is a “dash” of something in a 10-gallon recipe? Good luck with the brew!
That’s up to the brewer’s discretion. It’s all about feel once you get to this level!
