A couple folks asked me to post this recipe. It took a second place in public voting at a local brewery competition for experimental beers this past weekend. It got beat by a Hawaiian Porter (Kona coffee, chocolate, and toasted coconut). Who can compete with that combination?

Anyway here is my beer which tastes exactly like an oatmeal raisin cookie. I plan to do a winter warmer version of it soon for next winter.

Toast the rolled oats at 325° F in a convection oven for 1 hours to achieve

Turbinado sugar addition will go into secondary fermenter. Invert the sugar by mixing the sugar in ratio of 3:1 by weight with water. Bring to a boil until sugar completely dissolved. Add 1 tsp lemon juice and simmer until sugar solution turns clear.

Steep 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg, 1/4 tsp whole cloves, and 1 split and scraped vanilla bean in 6 ounces bourbon until time to keg. Strain
bourbon and add to keg to taste.
