I check the labels and then get the cheapest quick oats at the supermarket. I don't bother with flaked oats at the LHBS, way too expensive for basically the same ingredient.

No, it's my understanding that the rolling is done under heat and pressure, pregelatinizing the starches - pretty much the same stuff as flaked oats. I could be wrong, it's happened once or twice before.Wouldn't you have to cereal mash rolled oats? I thought only the quick oats were able to go straight into the MLT.
Of course Mr. Palmer has been proven wrong in the past.HowToBrew said:http://www.howtobrew.com/section2/chapter12-2.html
Whole oats and "Old Fashioned Rolled Oats" have not had the degree of gelatinization that Instant have had and must be cooked before adding to the mash.
Define 'oatmeal characteristics'...it's pretty flavor neutral.The one time I made an oatmeal stout (I know, not much experience there) I used 2lbs of 100% Natural Old Fashion Oats and got absolutely zero oatmeal characteristics out of it. Im cereal mashing next time.
