Hey Brewers,

Wondering if I could use Quick / unmalted Oats as part of the base.
75% ale malt and the rest - quick oats, will I get reasonable sugars from this?

I have used 20% in Irish stout along with 10% roast barley. Use a high diastatic power Ale malt with high % of unmalted.

I might trial a small batch first, a single stage mash as usual to see how this works.
But I do want a fairly high oat content - for a winter stout.
Thanks!

I use Traditional Uncle Toby's Oats. I, and some others, think you get better body than with Quick Oats (which have been treated to be "quick"). Others might have different views/experiences.

I usually throw 500g of no name rolled oats into my hazy beers plus another 500g malted wheat. Then around 150g of rice hulls to help with efficiency.
