Breakfast Stout

I'm trying a new kit from Northern Brewer. I'm a little bit unsure about how this will turn out. It has 1-1/2 pounds of Flaked oats in it, and no base malt. I'm trying to steep the flaked oats, but I've heard that can be trouble. The kit also contains a pound of lactose. It's probably going to be best for me if I don't drink too much of this at one sitting.
