You can use Whole Oat Grain.  :mellow:
I would think that you'd treat it like Rye,WBS,Wheat or any other grain.
I had no luck looking for a Oat Grain TEK since replying to this,I'll look more as time permits.
But it can't be much differant in getting the right moisture content :D

yea oat is great ,
i soak it for 24 hours(i change the water a few times when soaked),
i wash it good and throw it into boiling water,lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes,
wash again with cold water and strain for about an hour,
pc'ing for 75 minutes,
i find that oats colonize real fast.

goodluck

That sounds interesting enno.
I may have to try this.
Can you write up a "proper" TEK, or is it the same as Rye and/or Wheat as far as moisture content?

hey baph
yea i think that its same procedure,i dont relly use rye because i find oats and millet to work better(for me),as for wheat i think that soaking it for 5-7 hours and simmer for 15 minutes is all you need,but i use it only for cakes combined with millet(30 wheat,70 millet) and it works like a charm.
i get my oats from a bird store and it comes really dirty so when i soak it and change the water(3,4 times) when soaked i do it with very hot water(from the faucet) i simmer it just untill i see a few grains open,after that i wash it with cold water and strain it for about an hour(if i have the time i leave it in a colander coverd in the fridge over night,i find that i get the perfect water content this way),after i put it in jars,i have half a gallon jars that i use and for some reason i decided to pc them for 75 minutes and untill now it works great with no contams,i use polyfill for AE and i usally do g2g which i find to be the easiest(i find the when doing g2g from a new master jar my half gallon jars colonize in about 10 days ,i shake it when 30 % or so, and if i use the jar that colonized as a master jar it will colonize slower and so on,for millet and oats,i dont know if its the same for other grains),i think that oats colonize a little bit faster but both are great.

@High4life,
I searched my ass off to find a Oat Grain TEK and have had no luck.
This is a TEK that needs to be written in a "proper" TEK style and slapped up here.

@enno,
I use this TEK for wheat . http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/6695865/an/0/page/0

At any rate,It's a TEK I may have to persue :)

" will try the tek you sent,how does it work for you?"

It works well.
No it's 100% Wheat Berries,it's not mixed with anything else.

I'd like to see your Oat TEK.
Write one up.
I'm looking for the 100% Oat Grain TEK. :)

Load images at http://photobucket.com/
You can't put TEKs in the TEKs section of the site you have to put it here in the forums.
