Codename : Honey Oatmeal Stouthorpe
Building off the success of my recent breakfast stout, I am keeping with a breakfast theme with honey.

- 0.5 tsp Cinnamon powder at 5 minutes
- 0.1 Challenger hops at 0 minutes
- 4 ml Nottingham Ale dry yeast

- Prepare 8.5L strike water, 154F.
- Add the grains to the bag.
- Calibrate sonic screwdriver.
- Place the bag in the hot water, set the timer for 75 minutes, and maintain the temperature at 149 F. Looking for a minimum SG 1.027
- Lift the bag out, allow it to drip into the pot. Capturing every bit of potential sugar is good.
- Bring wort up to 212F to boil for 10 minutes, then bring down to 205-210 F.
- Set the timer for 90 minutes. Add hops, maple syrup, Whirlfloc hot chocolate and coffee at the prescribed times above. Looking for a minimum SG 1.052
- Sanitise everything required for fermentation.
- Cool to room temp, an ice-bath or a snowbank work effectively. (Switched to ice bath, snow is finally gone)
- Prepare yeast mixture.
- Add wort to the jug. Pitch yeast.
- Store in a cool place for primary fermentation for 14-21 days.
- Sanitise everything required for bottling.
- Transfer from carboy to bottling pot.
- Prepare 19g corn sugar with enough hot water to dissolve it. Add to pot.
- Preferably conduct bottle conditioning for at least 3-4 weeks.
- Pre-boil SG, 1.025, post-boil SG, 1.051.
I must admit, not my favourite stout. Got the right characteristics, just it had a bit of a sour finish. Not sure if it was the honey, or the cinnamon.
