I am planning an oatmeal stout as per vossys recipe. I am however confused as to the type of oats to use after reading a load of the posts on here. I have a bag of tesco value porridge oats, will these be ok? I am planning on roasting them in the oven for about an hour before I use them.
The recipe has 9.5 oz (270g) of oats in, should I bother with the 30C 'mash' before adding to the mash tun?

I force carbonate most of my beer in Cornies, and the Oatmeal Stout is always very nice after ony 2 weeks in the keg. To be honest, I often start taking 'samples' from the day I keg, and it's pretty good after 1 week. I have got a mini Cornie with some of this in which is 4 months old, and it is very nice, but so was the stuff I was drinking 3 months ago.
