Features
Château Oat Flakes are a pre-gelatinized brewing adjunct produced from selected naked oat kernels submitted to the flaking process where the whole kernel is steamed and passed through heated rollers to open the starch structure within the kernel endosperm. Also, Château Oat Flakes have a moderate level of lipids and high levels of glucans and proteins that have to be considered in the brewing process.
Characteristics
Château Oat Flakes give a creamy and silky mouthfeel and enhance the body and head retention of the beer due to their high glucan and protein levels. It can be added directly to the mash without milling or prior cooking as it is a pre-gelatinized and flaked adjunct.
