As was stated by Jbear, quick oats or flaked oats are already "gelatinized" when they go through the rolling process. However, I still do a cereal mash before adding them to my main mash. First I toast the oats at 300F for 30 minutes for some nuttiness. Next I add the oats to 3-4 quarts of water per pound with .5-1lb pale malt and slowly heat to 113F and hold for 10-15 minutes. Then I stir and slowly raise the temp to 150-155 and hold for 10-15 minutes. Then I boil that for 15 minutes and add to the mash.
Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health.
