Eric Rhude talks of adding quick oats to the wort.  In my understanding,
this would add starch  to the mix and could create a problem with
infections and starch haze.

Usually starch sources as pumpkin and oats are cooked (or gelatinized as
with the oats) and added to the mash so the enzymes can convert to
sugars. Adding to the wort sounds like problems down the line and little
contribution to the brew.  cheers,  jim booth, lansing, mi
