Wedding Beer Poll-Winner Announced, and then brewed

By a razor-thin margin, the oatmeal stout edged the Belgian dubbel for the 3rd wedding beer style in the open poll that's been open for quite some time. I wanted to get this beer brewed and in the bottle to allow for conditioning to allow the beer to slowly improve.

There may have been some ballot box stuffing toward the end of the vote, but lets just say, the best man and bride-to-be had a vested interest in the outcome.

The oatmeal stout was another early favorite of Esther's, who's also a fan of Sam Smith's take on the style.

The 10 gallon batch that was brewed for the wedding was an expanded all grain version of the extract Midwest kit I brewed early in my brewing days.
