All you are doing is adding some additonal starch to the bottle. You can do the same thing by adding the oats durring the brewing process. They will give a more creamy smooth mouth feel. I would suggest if you don't like the flavors you are hiding to try modification to your specialty grains, it costs less and accomplishes whay tou say that you are enjoying. Try also looking for a recipe with the oats in the brew....many times called "creamy' and see if you like the brew.

i did a copule bottle on Monday. it was an ordinary bitter, but the oats were just sitting there in plain view, so I figured what they hey, and tossed some in a couple.

we'll see in a couple weeks.

bottle - some odds and ends
Primary - Belgian Pale
Secondary - smoked ale, christmas ale
on deck - brrrrr-ley wine

What the hell happened to the follow up of this thread, I've just scrolled through 15 pages of heretic discussion, hotly anticipating the outcome from other brewers and no follow up.
