Working with one of the UK’s largest producers of oat based products we have sourced a wider range of products for use during brewing.
Using oat flakes in your brew will add a creamy smooth mouthfeel to your beers because of the high concentration of beta-glucans. 5-50%, a wide range of use in various beer styles, 5-10% for an oatmeal stout, or anything from 15-50% for a New England style, it is recommended to experiment and find what works best for your recipe and personal taste.
These are rolled to a finer setting of 20, which produces a smaller flake than a breakfast oat, size is closer to that which you would see being used for the popular children’s oat cereal that used to make kids glow on the way to school.
There is no need to select a crush on oats as we will always provide these whole and uncrushed.
Its is recommended to add an amount of oat husks to your grain bill to allow for better flow and prevent the risk of a stuck sparge.
