Default rice

So my dad works at a rice mill. And he wants me to do a rice beer. How do I use regular not made for brewing rice?

I believe you'll need to do a cereal mash- a quick search on the site should bring up a good procedure for that. You can't make an all-rice beer, but you can use it as an adjunct for lighter styles, particularly american lager styles.

Sorry everything I read seems to contradict themselves all I understand is boil rice until gelatin like. Then you put it in the mash? Is it that simple? Or is there better ways to do it

That's pretty much it. I make a very nice light ale that is simply pale malt and jasmine rice, mashed as described and using only splat hops.

I'm about to lager a version pretty soon to see how clean I can get it. The jasmine flavor and aroma do make it through.

I think I use 9lbs pale to 3lbs rice, only hop to 17 ibu.

Uuuuhhh...I was under the impression from young people that being a ricer was a bad thing?...
I usually see brewers using flaked rice. So I guess it doesn't matter as long as you use the proper method for the style of rice used?

That's my experience. I came up with my jasmine rice recipe for my Thai fiance who loves that flavor. She also enjoys Sapporo, so I was shooting for a jasmine version of that. Worked out well at 60 deg and us05. I can't wait to truly lager one and see how it turns out.

Nice idea Ely, but remember that wild rice is not rice. It's actually a grass seed.
