If you have a bulk bin at your grocery store, get rolled oats. Quick oats might have salt, which you don't want in your beer.

The Quaker Brand Quick Oats are sodium free.

Product: Oatmeal - Quick Quaker Oats | QuakerOats.com

I check the labels and then get the cheapest quick oats at the supermarket. I don't bother with flaked oats at the LHBS, way too expensive for basically the same ingredient.

I stand corrected! Likewise, I don't bother with flaked oats from the LHBS. Bulk bin FTW!

I look at the Quaker Quick Oat container every morning while microwaving my breakfast.

Wouldn't you have to cereal mash rolled oats? I thought only the quick oats were able to go straight into the MLT.

Yes you can!

No, it's my understanding that the rolling is done under heat and pressure, pregelatinizing the starches - pretty much the same stuff as flaked oats. I could be wrong, it's happened once or twice before.

That's what I understand as well. Rolled oats are pretty much the same thing as flaked oats.

So instant and quick rolled oats should be fine but the Old Fashioned Rolled and the Steel Cut Oats need a cereal mash? Just trying to get my facts straight.

For grins, I want to source some Irish Steel Cut Oats and have a Dry and an Irish Oatmeal for next StPat's day.

Whole oats and "Old Fashioned Rolled Oats" have not had the degree of gelatinization that Instant have had and must be cooked before adding to the mash.
Of course Mr. Palmer has been proven wrong in the past.

A cereal mash won't hurt and it doesn't really take that long. Do it anyway if you're concerned.

All I know is, my LHBS provides ROLLED OATS that can be put directly in the mash.
