If they are mashed with base grain to convert, you can add oats. They provide a slickness to the mouthfeel, almost creamy. If they aren't mashed, they will provide starch.

They work in a pinch but generally not advised. The ones at the LHBS are flaked and seem to behave differently in the mash. Might have something to do with the type or amount of starches. I think the rolled oats we eat at breakfast get too gummy.

You can use quick oats. They are ready to mash. They have already been converted.

That makes sense, hadn't considered the quick oats.

Make sure to use rice hulls so you don't get a stuck sparge. Quick oats are the way to go but they also get gummy. I like the mouth feel but don't like the cloudiness they add. I use them but only once in awhile.
