I am putting together the recipe. Base is Jamil's from his show. I just did a first taste on a Coffee Oatmeal Stout with a fair amount of oats. I like the mouthfeel even when green and was thinking of a small bit in the brown. Hopefully leaning more in the direction of Samual Smiths than Newcastle. Although both rock! Anyone added oats to their brown and have thoughts to offer?

man green bear tears up my stomach

I'd say go for it, at least a little bit. I threw some in a brown ale and I thought it turned out pretty good, but I never made that recipe with out it so I can't say what the difference is. Seems like I was on an oatmeal kick for a while throwing it in anything except pilsners.

I didn't toast mine, i just got some oats from the brew store, but I should have just used quick oats, I think they're sort of mashed already. I'd double check though, if you're looking for fermentables out of it. For just mouthfeel i'd just throw it in.

Yeah, pulling out Dream Academy is a bit dated IMO, funny though.
