Product Description

Made from dehulled oats, Oat Flakes are readily attacked by malt enzymes although brewhouse yield may be slightly lower than with any of the other pregelatinized flakes. Oat Flakes have a very distinctive "sticky" mouthfeel, noticeable even when used in small increments. Use 5-25% for an Oatmeal Stout. A small percentage of Oat Flakes is nice in Belgian-style White Beers. Oat Flakes tend to make a sticky mash. The more used, the stickier the mash. To counteract this, add more foundation water. Use a ratio of 3.0 to 3.2 parts of water to 1 part grist. The run-off from the lauter will remain rather milky, but clears during filtration
