I've never mashed popcorn before. I brewed this up today.

4 lbs Rahr Pilsner
3 lbs Rahr six-row
1.75 lbs hot air popped corn (Kroger brand)
.7 oz Mt. Rainer 90 min
.5 Saaz 10 min
1/2 cup US-05 slurry

Mashed at 153 for 60 minutes.


As it socked up watter it just sunk into the mash. I had no problems sparging with the valve wide open. It ran off faster than all malted barley would.

The wort tastes like corn on the cob. I can't compare it to flaked corn because I've never used that just corn mill, grits and unsalted canned.

I think this will be a fine cream ale.

It's from Radical Brewing.

I used the same extract potential as flaked corn and came out with the OG I was expecting; 1.047 for 5.5 gallons.

So how did you pop it? I assume you wouldn't want to use oil.

Using a hot air popper would be my guess.

My wife popped it for me with a hot air popper. No oil, just pure torrified maize.
