Flaked corn

Unread postby Nesto » Wed Oct 15, 2014 3:08 am

So I'm concocting an odd recipe. I'll post it if it ends up being decent. I'll be using 1/4kg of flaked corn. Right now I'm just planning to throw the corn into the mash for a single infusion. (It's flaked, so doesn't need a cereal mash). Does anyone have any experience with using flaked corn? Is there a special temperature step that will doing something special for it? All my Google-fu can't turn up much.

i just mix it in with other grains and mash normally. as you say, no cereal mash required. no problems to report so far, i hit the predicted numbers the few times i've used it.

Same as dinnerstick. Just crush it and add to the mash. If it's flaked you don't need to treat it beforehand.

What on earth needs corn in it?

Thanks guys - sounds easy. Just never used corn before. I'm concocting a Cream Ale, but not the BJCP Cream Ale (http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style06.php#1a). Mine is going to be mostly 2-row pale ale with some flaked corn, crystal and carapils, but with lactose added. And then in secondary I'm going to experiment with N2O infusions of orange and vanilla (http://www.cookingissues.com/2010/08/11 ... technique/) to make an Orange Creamsicle Ale. We'll see how it comes out!
