Since you are using American hops, IMO you should use US05.  It is cleaner and will let the malt and hops shine through more.  Some people really like S-04, I'm just not a big fan of it.  You could also drop the Pils and just use 2 lbs of two row.

Lagers really need temperature control during and after fermentation.  If you think you can do that, then I suggest that you check out Kai's site @ Braukaiser.com.  I followed his Dunkel recipe and it is the best lager that I've ever made.

So, last night I did a dark roast (55 min @ 325) and moved them around every 15 min.  I used Old Fashioned Oats and the smell was rather bad, in fact my wife said it smelled like paint.  The color is golden brown and I'm afraid to use them now because of the smell.  I tasted some and couldn't taste anything really bad, but I plan on brewing this weekend and it sounds like they need to mellow for awhile.

That should be fine.  I usually use 1.5-1.8 qt./lb. depending on my grain amounts.

I was planning on adding some toasted oats to my Brown Ale recipe. I've never toasted them before, so what's your method?

For the past three years, I've made a Barley Wine (American) on New Year's Day.  This year around X-mas I plan on doing a little tasting with some friends to compare the past three years and try to fill out some score sheets.

I know this might be hard since this is your first batch, but leave it alone for two weeks.  It'll probably be done at that point.  Opening the fermenter a bunch of times can just introduce more opportunites for oxygen and contamination.

What temperature was your sample?  A higher temp than 60 will give you a lower reading.

You might want to try using only 1- 2 oz of hops @ 5min. and 1-2oz @ flameout.  You could be getting grassy, vegetal flavors.

Since you changed either the malts, hops, or yeast, you have made it your own.  I don't think you need to mention the original recipe.  Remember, they got their idea for that recipe probably from another recipe.
