Looks fantastic.

A nice little variation of that might be to take a couple pounds of your MO and toasst it in a 350° oven for 30 minutes, adds a real nice touch to my milds.

I'm not big on Black Patent and would probably have it subbed by Chocolate malt or Special B. But that's my preference LOL.

Tasty.

I love a good mild.  This looks really unique compared to most recipes I have seen.

Oats make an interesting addition.  How do they affect clarity?  I have never used malted oats so maybe that is not a problem?

Also, I have never seen MO crystal.  Do you think that has a distinct difference to your run of the mill medium British crystal?

I need to try using different yeasts with my own "house" mild.  I like it as is using SO-4 but it would be good to experiment...

Milds are a great starter for the many liquid yeasts out there to try, as are ESB's  ;D

The crystal Maris Otter is a new malt from Simpsons. It has a nice toasty/nuttiness along with the normal medium crystal flavors
