Ha ha. Thanks everyone for the supporting info. As I said earlier I am new to the brewing thing, and I was torn between just following the recipe I had found or modifying it because it would make more sense to do so.
I talked to the guys at the ol LHBS and they basically stated the exact same thing everyone else has on this thread. If I were to leave the steeping grains as they were the starches from the oats would not convert, but the oats added would still add a creamy feel to the final stout. Adding 1/2 pound of 2-row, though, would convert the starches in the oats and still create the creamy feel to the final stout.
With all this, I chose the 1/2 pound 2-row addition.
Thanks for the help everyone.
