Features
This NON-malted cereal is to be used carefully as an adjunct that may provide many benefits.
Characteristics
Raw oat will give to the beer a fuller body and a creamy silky mouthfeel, thanks to their high content of beta-glucans. Raw oat provides a lot of non-fermentable sugars in the wort resulting in high final gravity, and therefore in sweeter, smoother flavors in the beer. Raw oat is usually mashed separately before its addition to the main mash. However, it could also be used directly in combination with Château Pilsen 6-row to compensate for the viscosity the oats will impart and to bring more proteins contributing to head retention.
Usage
Any type of beer in which the combination of features mentioned above is desired. Hoppy session beers are an example. Up to 30% of the mix.
Storage and Shelf life
Malt should be stored in a clean, cool (<22°C) and dry (<35RH%) area. If these conditions are observed, we recommend using all whole kernel products within 24 months from the date of manufacture and all milled products within 3 months.
