Default Oatmeal Stout Question?

Gonna do an oatmeal stout tomorrow. First time I've done one all grain. So dumb question, do the oats go in the mash tun along with the grain or in the boil?

If they're flaked oats (or quick oats) you can just put them right into the mash. If they're whole oats you will need to cook them first (make oatmeal basically) and then they go in the mash.

If you want to intensify oatmeal character use quick oats and toast them in the oven on a cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. Set you oven to 350F and spread the quick oats in as thin layer as you can and toast them until you start to smell that oatmeal cookie smell. Mash as normal and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Happy brewing.
