Default Flaked Corn

Can you squeeze the flaked corn out when finished steeping it?

It has soaked up over 60% of my water.

It should be mashed.

There are no tannins in corn anyway.

You can't steep flaked corn, you need to (mini) mash it.

Steeping?? You need to further explain what you have done. Flaked grains need to be mashed. Either way squeezing is not recommended. The used grain should be strained/rinsed to collect the liquid. If you are a novice do yourself a favor and buy a modern homebrewing book like Palmer's "How to Brew". An outline version is available @ nc online which will provide detailed information on steeping and partial mashing.

My terminology is wrong. I am mini-mashing flaked corn with cara-pils for a cream ale. 2 separate muslin bags.

You need some base malt in there to supply the diastatic power for it to be mashing. You were right before, you are steeping.
