Thanks for the answer, but to clarify my question, I was wondering 
about the accuracy of the claim that beer made with more wheat and 
less barley was stronger.  And also, what effect would 
oats have in comparison to an equal measure of barley? (or 
indeed beans, which are quoted in some sources!?)

With thanks in advance,
