AG or Extract? I am assuming extract since you want it simple?

In my opinion, doing an extract version of an oatmeal stout is a bad idea. The problem is that oatmeal is an unmalted grain whose starches have not been converted. If you don't at least do a partial mash, all you are going to get from oatmeal in an extract recipe is starchy beer. You need a mash to get the good stuff from the oatmeal.

Using flaked oats solves this problem. They've already been converted, so no mash is required, only steeping. Regards, GF.

Absolutely not true! The process of making the flaked oats gelatinizes the starches so you don't have to boil the oatmeal before mashing it, but you still have to mash it just like any other flaked grain. The same principle applies to all flaked grains -- they have no sugar in them, just gelatinized starch which eliminates the "cereal mash" -- preboiling, but does not eliminate the main mash for starch conversion.

as mkling has suggested, if you want to make an oatmeal stout, read up on doing a partial mash. yes, you can steep the oats and the starch haze won't be a problem because you're brewing a stout. but if you want the qualities derived from the oats that you perceive in oatmeal stout, mash it.
