Cool. When I toast malted barley, I spread on a cookie sheet and go with 350F for 10 minutes. I'll stick with that.
Dave, oats usually take me around 75 minutes to achieve the nuttiness and color I want. THis is doing 2 lbs at a time on a cookie sheet turning every 15 minutes or so @ 325-350
No kidding! Thanks Jason. What do you use to turn them? Spatula? How critical do you think this is?
Yes just a spatula. I think its critical to turn them for even browning. Your house should smell like nuts when you do this and the oats should turn golden brown. I also recommend doing it the day before brewday and storing them in a paperbag until you're ready to mash. Keep a watchful eye though, they can go from golden brown to black in a matter of minutes.
