Has anyone mashed wild rice? SWMBO is into lots of different kinds of rice and she made one the other day that was really sweet and delicious and all I could think of was 'I wonder what would happen If I mashed this?' I realize you would need to do it with some 2-row for the enzymes, but I was wondering what it would add to a beer. You would probably need to cook it as well?

I brewed with rice a long time ago and it was fairly easy. I ground the rice then cooked it for 30 minutes. It was then added it to my mash and converted with all the other grains. If I remember right, the rice had no effect on the taste. It just made the beer lighter and a bit more alcoholic. The rice I used was white un-cooked (Not instant).

Well, i guess I'll post my results and enlighten everyone as to what wild rice does. I may do a test mash and see what I get, either way I'll let you jakals know what happens.

I don't know much about whole grain, but did you know that wild rice is actually a type of grass? If you get true wild rice, it will all be black. When you buy Uncle Ben's wild rice, it is a blend of wild rice and white rice. There is almost zero starch content to wild rice.

owuldnt you have to gelatinize it or something by cooking it for a bit before you mashed? could be interesing, you should try it.

Capital brewery in Madison Wi used to do a wild rice beer, but it has been a long time since I have had one. I used to like their stuff at UW Mad's unions.

I would like to argue that.

I think people don't know how to get it to convert. ...that's just my thought.
