Centennial Cascade with Oats

For the 3rd batch in our 2 Hops series I made Centennial Cascade with Oats. To learn what oats do to a homebrew I went with half a pound. This recipe is for 1.25 gallons into the carboy

2 LBs 4 oz 2-Row

8 oz Oats

.25 oz Centennial @60

.25 oz Cascade @10

.25 oz Centennial @5

.25 oz both for dry hop

Color: Hazy yellow

Smell: Sweet malt with a hint of citrus with some floral

Taste: Very thick, floral very sweet almost like a brown sugar with some citrus

Overall: The oats didnt do anything to the head of this homebrew. 8 oz of oats are overkill in this beer. I would drop it back to 4 oz next time. I think the oats are doing something to the flavor as we should get more grapefruit out of this batch almost like we did in the Centennial Cascade small batch
