I'm planning to use up all my leftovers from recent batches, augmented with minimal newly-purchased ingredients, to make an oatmeal stout.
I know I need to mash the oats, so I picked up a pound of 2-row at the LHBS the other day. I already had 14 ounces of it leftover from a previous recipe that called for just two ounces. So I plan to mash a pound of flaked oats with 30 ounces of 2-row. Should I add my specialty grains to this mini mash, or should I just steep them separately?
