When I took a sample a few days later it was...

    Advice Please - Crush The Oats?

    I'm putting ~10% oats into a stout (next weekish) and have flaked oats to use - do I run these through the mill with the rest of the grain or leave as is? Thinking that it makes sense to crush, otherwise it will be a frikken mess, but on the other hand...?? Thanks in advance!

    Urgent Advice Please!

    I have seen a few weevils in the grain I'm crushing for a brew tonight. :angry: Will the crushed weevils affect the fermenting process/beer at all, even after a 60min mash & 60min boil? Or will they just add a little more protein? Thanks guys :)
