Default Flaked corn vs. corn sugar (dextrose monohydrate)

Will using corn sugar give a beer a different flavor than mashing flaked corn? I'm brewing a cream ale.

corn sugar will dry it out, I do not believe flaked corn will do the same thing

of course mash temperature also comes into play

That makes sense. I guess corn sugar will be totally different.

Thanks

I use corn sugar when I want to a beer to have a dry finish like a west coast APA

I have been wanting to do a cream ale with grits and minute rice but being up north

finding grits in the store is not so easy, so I will be using flaked corn from LHBS and rice flakes

all the best

I think I'll use grits. Grits here are like finding rice, many brands to choose from. Thanks

Flaked corn or rice can be mashed to add to the beer,but dextrose dries it out,or is more commonly used to carbonate with.

that is how I was going to do it and use the minute rice 1:1

I am going to do a 11.5 gallon batch of cream of three crops

but will do it with flaked maize/corn and flaked rice

all the best

I used corn meal and white rice when I wanted to do a light color, light flavor, light in alcohol beer. I ground the rice in my Corona mill. The only thing that went wrong for me was the light in alcohol part, ABV 5.5% wasn't what I had planned but great efficiency got me there.
