Steeping question

Recommended Posts

SO I am planning on doing an oatmeal stout with two cans of the SWOS. I would like to steep some oats and add some DME but I am not sure if I need to boil the DME then steep the oats or Steep the oats then boil DME. Thanks for the help if you all need more info just let me know

Steep the oats for 20 minutes or so than use that water to boil the DME in and add the HME at flameout. Make sure you use enough water. The oats will soak some up. Maybe a gallon per pound, in this case I'm assuming it is less than half a point so 2-3 quarts would probably work.

One note - just make sure you are using quick oats (rolled oats), and not some form of cracked oats or instant oats.
