Default Mashing Oats - Proper Temperature (2 step or single step)

Hey All,

Going to do a first partial mash. I've searched and seen results all over the board. What's the best way to mash Oats (with some 2 row, crystal, chocolate and munich malts)?

Single step mash at ~153 for 60 minutes?

or

Two step mash at ~133 for 30 and ~153 for 60?

The single step seems easier, but not sure if Oats need the protein rest?

Thanks for your help,
Tim

I have used oats successfully with a single step mash using "Quick Oats" (the cooks in 1 minute kind). From what I've read on here, the quick oats avoid the need for any additional mash steps or cereal cooking. Pre-gelatinized, I believe is the term for it as best as I can recall.

Also, giving the oats a brief toasting in the oven can really help the aroma/flavor you get from them.

Cheers!

As was stated by Jbear, quick oats or flaked oats are already "gelatinized" when they go through the rolling process. However, I still do a cereal mash before adding them to my main mash. First I toast the oats at 300F for 30 minutes for some nuttiness. Next I add the oats to 3-4 quarts of water per pound with .5-1lb pale malt and slowly heat to 113F and hold for 10-15 minutes. Then I stir and slowly raise the temp to 150-155 and hold for 10-15 minutes. Then I boil that for 15 minutes and add to the mash.

As mentioned, use Quick Oats from the grocery store and treat them just like your other masheable grains.

Thanks all!

That's exactly what I was looking for. The recipe calls for 1 lb of flaked oats with 1 lb of 2-row (plus some crystal, chocolate and munich). Total is 4.375 lbs of grain. I'll just throw it all in a grain bag with about 1.5-2gals and mash as above.

Thanks!
