Although commonly associated with Stouts, Porters and Wits, Flaked Oat may be utilized as a body enhancer in English Bitters and American Style Pale ales, especially with highly attenuative yeasts. For most 5 gallon recipes, 1 lb. is typical. With larger additions, add Rice Hulls to the recipe as the adjunct tends to gum up the mash during Lautering.
