Brewed an oatmeal stout (o.g. 1.074) on Oct. 19 (two weeks ago). For no particular reason I didn't filter the oats out when dumping into the primary, and decided to experiment and just leave them in there. Had a busy couple of weeks and am just now moving to a secondary to add coffee and spices tonight. I know it's a little late to ask now, but has anyone ever done this before or have any guesses as to how it will turn out?

The oats should go in the mash, not the boil or the primary. You may have a ton of starch if you boiled the oats.

It's an extract brew and my HBS recommended throwing oats in the boil at 15 min

I'd recommend changing LHBS if there's another game in town

Agreed, or at least not listening to anything they tell him ever again.
