I got 2 Woolworths Lager cans last week to try and I "brewed" them up on Sunday. I used both cans but added 250g DIY Crystal Malt and 250g of Rolled Oats. For the adjunct grains I put them in a BIAB and soaked them at 65ºC for 30 minutes, then added the cans to this wort and topped up to 23L before doing a 30 minute boil. My OG was a little lower than I expected so added 200g of LDME before the boil. I only realised last night that I probably missed my target because there was no diastatic power in the crystal malt and oats and should have also added 200-300g of a pale malt. I know that's not an issue for the crystal malt, but will I have got anything worthwhile from the oats?
