    A legit "recovery" beer for after long weekend runs or races.

    That looks great. I must do a low ABV beer for when the student daughter gets home.

    A while back I brewed a MG KH and was good. Since I talked about - how to add a smooth fluffy mouthfeel - adding oats was suggested, so did the same recipe with added oats.. this is it.

    I suppose so - it had a fluffy head, but still not as smooth as the one I had on tap at the bar/restaurant - then that could have been on nitro.. I will in a future brew add more oats and see then. Beer was/is a winner regardless.

    I still have to do a side by side comparison with the regular KH, tho they are very similar. The oats KH wee bit more cloudy.. but can't really tell taste wise. Std KH also very smooth.

    I brewed a amber pale ale while back and that had a good silky mouthfeel.. moreso than these two KH varieties. I brewed another amber pale ale yesterday.. I suspecting the melanoidin malt giving that creamy feel. I posted the grainbill yesterday morning.

    There is always 1 more thing to consider. Look at the cl:so4 ratio of your water. Maybe aiming for a more malt focused profile will help?

    I've not progressed to the water chemisty part of brewing yet... but will play around with the grainbill, do research .. till I find something that works. Its the adventure of experiments for me.
    I'm using filtered harvested rain water - tastes like good springwater from the shops.

    yeah that's probably removing most of the minerals you actually want in your brew. Not to mention that your yeast also need minerals for a healthy fermentation.

    Mmm. Thinking about it, harvested rainwater has probably very little minerals in it. It's not like it's Alpine glacier water! more like RO water and considdering it's probably a good clean slate to start off with. I'll get some white stuff from my LHBS. Probably the next step in my learning curve. What chemicals you guys suggest I should get? Is there a guideline as to which beer styles need what chemical bill? I haven't googled yet - asking first.Thx
