Usually only available to large distilleries in bulk, premium distillery grains now available in smaller quantities for other uses.
Oats are sometimes used in place of wheat or rye to soften and balance the sweetness in a mash bill with lots of corn. Oats have a long history in brewing, only more recently have distillers been experimenting with this unique grain and its effects on whiskey grain bills. Some experts note that it can impact the mouthfeel and body of the final product, making for a fuller whiskey. Oats can add this complexity even if they make up only a small amount of your mash bill.
These premium oats from Gold Stone Mill LLC are grown in North America, and have been expertly cleaned to reduce dust and dirt, husks and stalks. Less impurities often produces a higher yield in the still -- dirt and chaff don't produce any fermentable sugar, after all.
Gold Stone Mill offers both whole grain, if you wish to mill it yourself, or a fine grind option if you want to skip the milling and get straight to production.
Larger volume (200lb+) may result in price breaks, please contact Gold Stone Mill (www.goldstonemill.com) directly to inquire about their services.
