Batch 2: Oatmeal StoutI then discovered the Seven Bridges Organic Brew Co-op. They're a company up in Santa Cruz that specializes in organic beer ingredients. They had a sale on their Organic Oatmeal Stout Mash-Extract kit. I took a slightly better brewing notes (which I plan to fill in here someday) and used liquid yeast this time.
I was really happy with the way this kit turned out: it was a big improvement over Batch 1.
