    "Oats have no enzymes useful to mashing. They must be mashed (or partially mashed) with a
    malted grain for the starches to be converted."Jasoncouldn't have said it better myself.You CAN

    I've asked about the AHA discount at brewpubs that arn't on the list and 9 times out of ten
    they will give me 10% off.

    Treat yourself and take the metro into DC and go to the Brickskeller. You could spend days in
    there and not have the same beer twice! Literally the worlds largest beer selection!

    I say why not, you get Zymurgy magazine, which IMHO, is better than BYO. Plus it pays for
    itself if you use the pub discount 3 or 4 times.

    It is next to impossible for a homebrewer to use too much yeast. Even with the "larger amount"
    you won't/can't overpitch. Just make sure they are the same strain.
