First of all, I have to say I am very, _very_ sorry you were not able to get WY3711. That is some tear-inducingly beautiful yeast. I would invite 3711 as a groomsman at my wedding if I could.

That's about 17% oats, which many would call too much. I have found my happy spot with oatmeal stouts to be about 10%.

You do say though that it doesn't taste good, but how does it not taste good?...

It would lower the gravity, yes. Vodka is ~0.950 SG, and GU=(SG-1)*1000, so:

512oz (4 gallons) beer at 1.006 = 6GU*512oz = 3072 GUoz
6oz (4 'normal' shots) vodka at 0.950 = -50GU*6oz = -300 GUoz...

I guess a higher-than-expected FG could be an "extract-like" flavor, which could be from a too-high mash temp, poor conversion (pH, temp, etc).
Lack of complexity might lead some to taste...

Yep, as long as it doesn't freeze, you're fine. And even if it does freeze, just be sure not to destroy a carboy or keg (but not freezing is preferred).
