Default Rice Maltose

Anyone tried using Rice Maltose instead of brewing sugars? Seems very cheap and it feels and smells exactly like the barley malt we are all so used to. Do you guys think it is a good alternative to brewing sugars?

Since it's mainly maltose rather than dextrose, it might actually taste better. However, it would be a good idea to find out how much is complex carbohydrates, some forms can run 30% or more.

I'd say, run an experiment and get back to us.

My friend had used rice maltose for his brew, he added about 2.5kg of rice maltose and he said it taste like sake!

But for beer brewing purposes, perhaps 1kg of rice maltose can really add some distinct flavours to the brew? I think I will try it with 500g or 1kg of rice maltose in my next brew.

BudMillerCoors

Bud & Coors use rice as an adjunct, Miller uses corn.

Tell me more about Rice Maltose. Where do you buy it? Is it the same thing as rice solids?

In my country, it's very cheap. Like Sing 1.50 per 500g! 1 US = 1.5 Sing.
