How well did the oatmeal come through with just one pound? I want my brew to really showcase the oatmeal, I just had a Highland Oatmeal porter where the oatmeal came through really well which I enjoyed.

Hmm, I'm not sure. I thought that oats mostly contributed a silkiness as opposed to a flavor. What did the oats taste like in your Highland Oatmeal Porter?

I'm thinking about maybe omitting the crystal malt and upping the oats to 1.50lbs, possibly splitting between flaked oats and malted oats. The only other thing I might do is use fuggles all the way through instead of using EKG since I can get a 4 ounce pack of fuggles cheap from www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com and make use of just about the whole thing on this single brew.

The highland beer's oat flavor tasted literally like what oatmeal tastes like. Maybe I'll only up the oats to 1.25 instead of 1.50 so that it doesn't get too slick of a mouthfeel.

After doing some research I think I'll just stick with your original 1 pound of oats, but I'll toast them at 300 degrees until they turn a golden color. From what I've read that gives you a lot more pronounced oat flavor. That way I don't butcher up your recipe too bad, lol.
