1. Has anyone had any success using "parboiled" rice directly in a mash?
2. Is it possible to just cook rice, then add it directly to the mash?
Never tried #1. I've done #2:
First, I milled the rice (yes in my grain mill), and I cooked it in extra water (about 3:1 water:rice) until it started to gelatinize. Add this to the main mash, and mash for 90 minutes.
The gelatinized material is VERY easy to scorch, be very careful.
