I have two basic lawnmower beers- a cream ale (with flaked maize and not rice) and a beer I call Fizzy Yellow Beer. Both are really good and seem to go over very well with everybody- craft brew lovers and BMC lovers alike.

Regarding rice, if you do attempt a recipe with it, you should get minute rice from the store. That rice is already gelatinized so it's ready for mashing.
Would you care to be specific about why you do not like rice?

Gelatinizing it is easy: just cook it with too much water before mashing.

Minute Rice has no appreciable flavor, but if you're willing to spend an hour - even a few days ahead - on the cereal mash, I've found that brown basmati can be pleasant.

fwiw i have never brewed co3c, or any brew with maize.

I might have to grab that recipe.

Is there a problem with adding aroma hops at flameout to this beer? I feel like BMC beers have no smell, well not a very good one. And I would like to have some

I get a banana-y saki flavor when I use rice. I can taste the corn when I use that too. I wish it wasn't so, because I want to perfect a light lager.

I can see how that would be objectionable.

I don't recall that flavor from my brown ale made with 15% brown basmati.

I have a 30% brown basmati kolsch lagering right now, and plan to start drinking it in a few days.
