Default Corn flakes?

Hello,

Usually I buy flaked corn at the homebrew shop, but I imagine that Kellogs Cornflakes is the same thing?

Is this correct?

Flaked corn will be just corn. I'm pretty sure that Kellog's corn flakes will have many more ingredients including salt, sugar, etc........

No, not remotely close.

Flaked corn is a process by which a corn kernel is pressed and steamed to gelatinize it's starches for easier conversion. It isn't anything but a kernel of corn that has been processed. Much like how Oatmeal is Flaked Oats.

Corn Flakes are a breakfast food product made of corn flour along with gobs of other ingredients. Stick with the product from the LHBS or maybe look at doing a cereal mash with corn grits. Cornmeal is also an option but gets nasty during the mash/sparge.

No, I would imagine Kellog's Cornflakes has about a billion other things (like preservatives) that you may not want in your beer. I don't have a box handy to look up the ingredients though, but I would imagine they're not a good substitute. But if you're willing to find out for us...

I recently used grits myself and it seemed to work fine.
