Chamomile 2+3

You can read about #2–the lighter beer in this photograph-here.

chamomile brewsBut #3, seems to have no nose to it at all. From a  flavor perspective it doesn’t ring any serious bells-nothing seems off or weird. It’s a little less sweet, which I think is a good thing.

However, the mouthfeel is improved. There’s something just a little bit silkier about it, which is a nice effect. I dig on the result and I think it’s  a definite plus for certain styles, especially darker ones.

Essentially, I think toasting the oats will become part of making this beer and is something I’m going to keep in mind for my future stouts. Here’s the recipe:
