How to get around this could be an issue: “Due to the prohibitively expensive shipping required to keep these frozen in transit, Blue Lake Hops are available for pickup only.”

They'll ship, but like they say...

Today’s brew

The club has a cereal beer challenge each year. I drew Oreos cereal so I am brewing a 1 gal batch this AM (because I don’t want a full keg of Oreos Cereal Stout).

Although, last year the chocolate cereal beer wasn’t too bad. It took 3rd at its table in the AL Brewer’s Cup which gave me a check mark in category 15. (I am trying to score above 30 in all 41 categories of beer/mead/cider.). We’ll see if this one brings me success in category 16.

Good luck - it looks to be very tasty.  I assume you have already met your goal in the Sweet Stout (16) category?  That would seem the most appropriate category here with Oreo cereal, if you were adding a bit of lactose (which you are not)....or perhaps SHV 30A due to the chocolate as a spice?  The 16 B works, though, since you have oats added, of course, just wondering about the judges reaction to it in this category. 

Good luck and let us know how it goes.  A small batch of it would be nice to have around for a change of pace on the stout front.  I am due to brew something stout-ish and this might just be my inspiration to get it done.

I am torn to where I should enter it 16A or B. I went through the same iterations you did with the decision. Since I didn’t add lactose I settled on B because of the oatmeal and the cereal is made with oats, wheat, and sugar mainly. …but we’ll see how sweet it ends up and if I get the creamy vibe from the oatmeal.  I believe I can change the entry based on the results of the finished beer.
