OK, read this, now I need to ask a question for my own sanity...
- I am making a Stout kit, but planned on adding some oats / 6 row (1lb each) to convert it more to an oatmeal stout.
- I planned on mashing this along with my steeping grains at 155ish.
- (Now the question) - Should I mash the oats and 6 row in my mashing pot, and steep my grains seperately in my boil pot? As said, since I was going to elevate my extract git to a PM kit, I thought I would just put it all into the pool together for a bigger mash...now Im thinking I should steep the specialties at a higher temp by themselves.?
