What would happen if I use this grain bill without a protein rest?
7# Briess 6-row pale
2# flaked maize
1# Weyermann munich
From what I read the protein rest is needed for more than 25% under-modified malts and adjuncts and the corn is less than 20% of the grain bill. The 6-row has high diastatic power but more protein. Will I just get lots of hot break and chill haze or will there not be enough free amino acids and medium proteins for body and head retention?
