The only one I've heard of is oatmeal stouts...

You can find some recipes.  Note that oats must be mashed.  Therefore
you will have to use them with some amount barley malt (I'd guess up
to 70/30 barley/oats).

So... look around for some oatmeal stout recipes, but beware that some
of them may (incorrectly) not mash the oats.  Look for recipes that do
some sort of mash (mini-mash or cereal-mash or full-mash) with them.

The Quaker oats are fine.  Best results in fact are with the quick
version, as they don't need much breaking down.

I've only brewed one batch so far (oatmeal stout), so I'm not an expert.  My
'brewmaster/instructor' at a local BOP said that Quaker oatmeal was a
different cut and had been 'glutonized' and that Oats for brewing were
definitely better for that purpose.

I wonder whether he meant "gelatinized".  If so, they are very ready
to be mashed.  Generally the more processed, the better, as long as no
additives.  Just use quick oats, whether by Quaker, some other brand,
or from the bulk bin at a local store.

I've used oats in my oatmeal stouts and they come in handy if I want to
brew a
big assed Scotch Ale with heaps of creamy malt notes.

The gelatinised oats are fine - quick oats etc, as long as they don't
have
additive flavours in them.  Otherwise get your own oats, cook them
up and chuck
them in the mash.  You'll find they get less gluggy in the
pot if you heat the
non-gelatinised oats in the pot along with some
cracked malt to keep the lot
from turning into cement!

Go to your local feed store and buy a 50 lb sack of rolled oats for about
$7.00. Find a recipe on the internet and try it. If it does not work you
will have plenty of oats left over to try a new recipe.



Re: Oats- In what type of beer do I use them


I found some Dutch tekst about Oat beers. Oats were used frequently in the
early days of beer brewing an later replaced. Oats contain a lot of greace
that is not good for the foam stability of the beer. Besides that the beer
will be dryer then with the other grains. You can use Oats malted or
unmalted.
In Europe Oats are used in wheat beers and stouts and sometimes in white
beers (Hoegaarden). Tripel Karmeliet (Belgium) and Hoegaarden White beer are
using Oats, barley and wheat.

I hope this will help.
