Thanks so much! Recipe is great!
I just made this today. 12 gallons split into three 4 gallon batches. US-05, White labs American Ale and Kolsch. I really like this with US-05 and American ale yeast, but this will be the first time with Kolsch style yeast.

Almost opened up the fermenter on my special version of this just so I could taste it . But better sense prevailed and I will leave it for another week until I have time to bottle it . Unless I do not work tomorrow then it is on . I really want to taste it .

Anyone try using brett to ferment this out and see how it tastes? Any thoughts on it? I was thinking of using Mosaic... throwing brett in, letting it sit then POSSIBLY dry hopping it with a small bit of mosaic for a few days....

This is a very simple, inexpensive cream ale recipe that will get every BMC drinker in the room enjoying homebrew. So named because of the three different crops that go into the grist (Barley, Corn and Rice).

I brewed up 10 gallons of this and after kegging, bottled up a case to take to a family event (Mothers Day). Even my 78-yr old FIL, who is strict Miller Lite drinker, ended up having two pints. The chics dug it and we ran out well before the end of the evening.

The grain bill is cheap and in this case, you can use Minute Rice instead of flaked rice. No step mashing required. Simply combine the ingredients and follow a simple single infusion mash at around 152 degrees. I also mashed this for 90 minutes to get a highly attenuated beer. FG was 1.005...leaving a very dry, crisp beer with no noticeable graininess.

While this doesn't adhere to the strict beer laws, and I don't consider this one of my "craft" efforts, it is without a doubt the beer that I get the most "you really made this beer?" comments.

So if you've got some hard core "If it ain't Budweiser it ain't beer…" drinking friends…give this a try.

This beer clears up quickest of any of my recipes.

If you have a mill can you just run whole corn through it? If not why would this not work...

Whole corn is very hard and large . It would tear up your grain mill . It needs to be more of a grinding and crushing instead of milling . A real good food processor might work. A corona mill could do the job most likely. It also needs the starches gelatinized with a good hot cereal mash I think . Also use field corn not sweet.

Seems to me that for small batches flaking your own might be not the best bet as you buy the corn $ then you buy some grains to add in the cereal mash $$$ Then the time to mash and I guess allow to dry if your making more than you can use in one batch ? Mill . I think I would just buy them but I could be wrong on this as I have not added up the cost of everything .
