30 minute mash? Is that right?

Yes, I've rarely had to mash longer than that.

Wouldn't it be more economical to use less grain and mash longer? I really don't know, I have done one mini-mash soon to all grain. . .still learning here. Then again, probably just a couple dollars.

With the flaked oats, you may really want to do a rest at about 122... or, you may have some real issues with the sparge.

How long should the rest at 122 be? I'm doing an Oatmeal Stout this weekend and would like to have it go a little better than my Hefe experience last weekend. Also, what would be a good water to grain ratio be for the mash? Since I am mashing in a cooler I'll probably be doing a decoction mash to do my mash rests.

I did my Oatmeal Stout in a cooler, with multiple infusions, it was easier than decocting... Rest at 122F for 20 minutes, I used .9qt/lb with 12 lbs of grain, then I added another 8qt of boiling water to rest it at 153F for an hour, then mashed out with 9qt of boiling water. I never had a stuck mash, it went really well, 79%eff and 75% attenuation, 6% ABV.

I don't know if a multi-rest mash schedule is necessary. I didn't do one last time, had no problems w/ the sparge and got my typical efficiency. I may try it when I brew this again in a few days and see if it makes any difference. Now that I've got a direct-fire MLT, step mashes are easy.

If the starches are converted (and you can verify this w/ iodine tincture) then there's no point in mashing any longer. With most grains we use today, 30 mins has been plenty, although I have had to go longer on occasion.
