Golden Naked Oats vs. Flaked Oats
« on: April 18, 2011, 05:06:34 PM »
Are they totally different?  I was thinking of subbing GNO for Flaked Oats.

Any thoughts?

My understanding is that the golden naked oats are a crystal malt. I mean to use them sometime.

I know Flossmoor Station uses them in their Pullman Brown.  Matt Van Wyk told me so before he left and confirmed it in an interview on CYBI.  He said they used to actually toast flaked oats on large sheets in a pizza oven.  From what I have researched, you use 1/2 of the GNO vs. flaked oats in a recipe: 1/2 lb. GNO = 1 lb. flaked.
