Toasting Flaked Oats

Post by etbandit » Tue May 01, 2007 1:07 am

I am planning to brew an oatmeal stout and have seen recipes using flaked oats they have toasted in the oven.

What would be the effect on beer aroma/flavour/mouth feel etc. from using toasted flaked oats. And are there any benefits?

Toasty Flavor!

The toasted oats would impart a "toast-biscuit like" flavor to the beer. you have to be careful not to toast them too dark though, you will end up degrading the starch. The effect is similar to using biscuit malt/Victory malt but in an oat way.[/code]
