It's still got starches in it. Making it sweet is what the mash is for.

I'm confused, we tell you the right way to use it, and you don't want to bother now, because it's different than the way you planned?

Popping gelatinizes the starch. It's basically torified maize. You could grind it to grits. Then it would need to be cereal mashed or pre-cooked to get full extract.

I prefer the the flavor from the polenta I used in my CAP. It was a cereal mash.
