I'm sure others will correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember people saying "instant grits" is what you use in place of flaked corn.

I like frosted flakes, more fermentables.

Here's the page at midwest showing flaked corn under adjunct grains; http://www.midwestsupplies.com/flaked-corn.html
Def a bit different than corn flakes. Especially when you use the zoom function.

Completely different. It's like rolled oats vs Cheerios. You could probably do something interesting with corn flakes in your brew, but it's not a substitution.

Although if you used enough corn flakes in your brew you could get your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals just from having a beer. Now talk about a breakfast substitution - I think you're on to something!

Adding a bit more to my earlier post:

Here's a discussion (elsewhere) where someone describes how they have used Corn Flakes in their beer: http://hbd.org/brewsandviews/message...tml?1074488172

I looked up the ingredients for Kellogg's Corn Flakes. It's got corn, sugar, malt flavor, and some salt. Since all of those except the salt are pretty standard beer adjuncts, I don't think there'd be any major problems assuming their processing/cooking sufficiently gelatinizes the corn. So it's probably a lot closer than Cheerios to oats, but still not a substitution.

edit: I see m_stodd posted the ingredients link above my post...
