Sam from Dog Fish did an episode on this when his show was on TV, forgot what it was called....

That's exactly what I was thinking... Beginner brewing with 100% corn maybe? I think most of us are beginners at that!

My reasoning was the native Americans got about 3% the way they did it without added grains. Bit of a mystery?...

If the overall temperature of the grain went above the maximum temperature for the enzyme, the enzymes will have been deactivated.

A quick google shows that folks air-dry the corn once it has sprouted, usually using a fan.

You may want to try it on a smaller scale, say 4 or 8oz and see how it goes.

I called Jack Daniels to see exactly how they malted their corn. Evidently they felt I wasn't far enough south at this time. I did get directions.

krackin, JD uses barley too in there mash. Saw ut on one of there many history channel specails.

I would guess you would either need A enzyme or atleast 10-20% barley to get conversion
