Best to is balance it out and add at 65C on the way down with temperatures. This way they will both do their thing and convert starch to sugars.

Grinding and particle size are another matter as is duration to fully gelatinise.

Forgot to mention that I was planning on using my Guten to take the temps UP like a normal brew. Are you suggesting I should do the hot stuff first (oats and corn), then once it is down to 65, do a mash with the malt? Given I have thermal control of the grains in the mash pipe, was hoping to do it either all at once, or with step mashes......

This is how to do it, adding it all hot kills the malt amalayse, keeping it low for the amlayse does not gelatinise, no free lunch, do the hard yards. Its chemistry.
