I would like to make an ale that will be both cheap, creative, and "old time" to be served at our wedding.
We have several really nice beers and wines in the make now, and i have an open 6.5 gal that i would like to make a two grain beer in.
The only grains that i want to use are 2 or 6 row malt, and corn. To further the fun and conversation around this beer, i would like to use whole kernal corn which i will sprout, mill, cereal mash, then add to standard mash.
Therefore, i need to know how much enzyme & conversion power is left in my 2 or 6 row mash after it has converted itself, and how much corn i can add and get as much conversion on the added corn as possible.
I know that my beer may taste awful. it might even end up being a malt liquor by makeup. none of that matters. i just want to have yet another interesting beer (even if it's awful) to serve at the wedding. besides, trust me, i have enough relatives and friends that won't care how bad it is, as long as it "does the trick".
-5 gallon recipe
-- how much corn (lbs)?
-- 2 row or 6 row? (6 row has more conversion power, right?)
-- how much base malt (lbs)?
-- corn mash at 170F?
Remember, i want the ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM ammount of corn that can be used.
