Recipe of the Week: Quiet Storm Stout

So now that it's almost the end of July, it may be time to start thinking about making some nice fall/winter beers that develop with a little age. Today's recipe comes from an award winning brewer who has been featured in Zymurgy magazine. Jimvy developed this recipe on his own and it was an award winner from the start. This recipe garners rave reviews from the homebrewing world.

Oatmeal is not only a hot breakfast cereal but it is a nice additive to beer recipes. It gives them a nice creamy smoothness and also helps with head retention. The addition in this recipe is perfect to give a nice frothy head and a smooth texture while it crosses your tongue.
