Is the following correct?

I am making for the first time an Oat stout, and would appreciate anyone checking I have understood, how to use Specilist grains, and oats correctly.

I steep the specialist grains to make a 'tea' and put aside
I make a thin porridge of the oats and put aside
Bring Mash water up to temp
Add in Porridge and gain
After a mashing add 'tea' to Pre boil Wort and boil in the normal way

In order to make an oatmeal stout, unfortunately, you need to perform a real mash with base malt (2-row malted barley), otherwise you get nothing from the oats other than starchy haze. To do your mini-mash, use about a 1:1 ratio of 2-row to flaked oats. If you don't have flaked oats (this is the form you find it in at most brew shops), then you need to perform a cereal mash, which is another thing entirely.
