Black as a Midlands night, Sticky Wicket Oatmeal Stout is a masterful blend of pale, caramel, chocolate and roast malts, along with a generous portion of malted oats. Moderately bitter, yet creamy and satisfying, Sticky Wicket has the roasted flavor of an English stout and a dense, rich head from the oats for a truly unique experience.

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)

NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER. 

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Using a measuring cup, pour 6 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot.
    2. Add 4 oz. Flaked Oats, 2 oz.(half packet) of Chocolate Malt and 2 oz.(half packet) 2-Row Brewers Malt Grains to the Muslin Grain Sack and bring your water up to above 155 degrees F.
    3. Add the grain sack to the hot water and steep for 30 minutes between 155-165 degrees. (You may add up to another 2 cups of hot water to make sure that your grains can be fully submerged.)
    4. Carefully lift the grain sack out of the pot and place into a strainer/colander. Rinse the sack over the pot with 1 cup of hot water. Let drain. Do NOT squeeze the grain bag. Discard grain bag.
    5. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    6. Bring the grain water to a boil, then remove from heat.
    7. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME Softpack and pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called “wort”.
    8. Fill keg with refrigerated water to the #1 mark on the back.
    9. Pour the wort into the keg, then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    10. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
    11. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 65° and 76° F (20°-25° C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.
    12. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface.


Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks.
After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process. 

Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to make, and a great drink. wow! what a great brew. Fun to make, and it takes a little patience and adherence to technique. You must monitor the temperature of the mash, but that is not so hard. I had a great time making it, and today, after five weeks in the bottle, I sampled it for the first time. Nice malt flavor, very dark and balanced, with an excellent head. I might just boost the alcohol in the next batch (I will definitely be making it again) as it only has a 4.8% alc. I expect it will continue to improve in the bottle over time. Do yourself a favor, and buy this recipe...even if you have to buy a new thermometer. PS Use spring water, or, at least, purified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This recipe was pretty easy make and is a great if you are wanting to get into full grain mashing. I am in the carbonation phase of the process but seems to be progressing very nicely. Love how Mr. Beer has progressed into grain mashing. Makes it a little more exciting than just open this can and open that can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First partial mash I was worried that adding a partial mash to the recipe would raise the difficulty of the brewing process. As everything was included with the kit it is a breeze to brew although it does take a little more time. It is fermenting now in the LBK and I look forward to trying my first sip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy abd delicious!! Bought this to try a partial mash recipie and was impressed with the ease of brewing! The instructions were very helpful as well. I tried my first after six weeks in the bottle. It tastes great, but I think it needs a little more time for all the flavors to pop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Partial Mash. Just bottled it last night but it already has me eagerly awaiting the final product. Has a great flavor and aroma. I came in a bit light on the ABV @ 4% but my OG was a bit low to start with 1.040, probably could have used a little more seep time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stout I've come to love oatmeal stouts, and I enjoyed the extra ingredients involved above a standard refill. I'll definitely order again.
