Exactly the same stuff, usually. Often cheaper from a home brew shop :wink:

You can. Rolled oats are already gelatinised so there's no need for a cereal mash.
In or near Norwich? Interested in meeting up monthly to talk and drink beer? PM me for details.

Tesco do 500g of quakers rolled oats for 1.20 which sounds reasonable

Used oats for the first time on last brew. The recipe said rolled oats so I got the same as sbond above from tescos. Still in fv at the moment so can’t confirm how it turned out yet.

I often use porridge oats in my brews. I just use the cheapest I can find. Usually Asda Smartprice, under £1 for a Kg I think.

I just use ‘Moonflake’ oats as it’s what I prefer for making porridge. They’re instant oats, so no cereal mash. I’ve made a very nice oatmeal stout with these added and also an IPA with a nod to the NE style.

I've toasted my own before now. I added them to quite a complex Stout grist so can't really say how much impact it had. From memory I toasted Tesco Scottish oats on a baking sheet at 100c, for as long as it took for significant colouration, without burning.
