Trying something different here, from which I got many people telling me this will not work and I'll have to dump my whole batch. Anyways, I decided to go for it, brewing an Oatmeal stout with real chocolate flavor, plus a hint of coconut and mint.
Here's the recipe. It is fermenting really nice at 67F right now. Will post the outcome of this experiment.
8# Briess 2 row
1# Briess Crystal 120L
1# Briess aromatic
1/4# Chocolate Malt 350L
