Thanks for the recipe, that does sound like an excelent beer. I have never used quick oats, only flaked. Does that require a step mash? If it does, I've been trying to find an excuse to build Flyguy's steam system. NB doesn't list quick oats either, I guiss you mean the stuff from the grocery store. I don't think I can find any Kent Goldings anywhere but I assume Willamete would be suficient.
