Nice recipe, I haven’t used oats in a pale beer before now only porters and stouts to create a smoother mouthfeel. I might have to give this recipe a try.

Sounds delicious, how has this turned out? Do you like the flavour that the caramunich provides to the beer?

I really should mod my brupaks MLT for a ball valve like you’ve done!

I’ll let you know what I think on Jims, its been bottled less than a week so far.
