Malted Oats can give your beer a full, soft and silky mouthfeel and an almost granola-like characteristic. Because of high levels of Beta Glucans, a high percentage of Malted Oats can lend to a gummy mash, and a Beta-Glucanase Rest (113° F for 15 minutes) is recommended for easy lautering.
Use at a rate of 5% - 10% to enhance body and flavor of malt forward beers. Use at a rate of 10% - 20% to enhance body and flavor, as well as creating a sweet/granola forward wort and enhancing dark malts. Use up to 100% if you want to get crazy.
Note: Sold by the pound.
