    But why are you assuming that?  There are some recipes, 
such as the Doomsday Ale (1222AD) where the oat percentage 
is so high, that it *has* to be malted or they would have wound
up with porridge and a stuck mash!  If they were malting oats in
1222, why wouldn't they have been doing so 100 or 200 years 
later?  Or 400 years earlier?
