Yes. I just put it in a pot on the stove with plenty of water (then subtracted that water from the final recipe) and slow-cooked it for about half an hour. Be warned, though - you HAVE to keep stirring it otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.

You can do the same with the rice, or, use instant rice.

That's great, thanks for the tip. I will try this next time I brew it!

I used P.A.N. from the store its precooked corn meal. You can find it in the Mexican section. Also use instant Rice. Both Work great. efficiency was about 85%. Last batch I made subbed in 8oz of table sugar took out 12oz of corn. Racking to secondary tomorrow. Hope its as good as the first batch.

Many thanks for the recipe BierMunche. I bottled conditioned for 4-weeks, and I think this is a very pleasant sociable beer. I have friends that don’t care for dark beers, or IPA’s, and I wouldn’t share one of my over hopped beers with them. I put this one to the test, shared it, and they came back for more. (Naturally I cut them off, lol)
The brew club I belong to wants me to share this at our upcoming dinner of 7 courses of various beers, 5 courses of foods paired to match the beers.

I will definitely keep this one in stock, and plan on brewing batch #2 this weekend.

I just bought the ingredients to do a five gallon batch of this today. My grain bill was 6 lbs. of two row, 2 lbs. of flaked maize, and 1 lb. of flaked rice. Using one ounce of Willamette, and Safale US05 yeast.

I will attempt this tomorrow as my first AG brewing experience. Hope all goes well!

I'm brewing this right now, and as I got the OG sample, the color is looking sort of like lemonade. My 5 gallon grain bill was:

6lb 2-row
2lb flaked corn
1lb flaked rice

Do you all think it'll stay this color? Doesn't seem so yellow to me

My guess is that corn in suspension is giving it the yellow colour. Mine was like that and over time when the corn fell out of suspension it cleared nicely and all as good.

I spent about a whole hour last night browsing this thread and saw peoples pictures, seems similar to mine. I checked beersmith, and i had the same SRM as the original recipe. Sounds like everything will turn out ok. Thanks for the clarification birvine!

If you dry-hopped this with an ounce of Tettnanger, do you think it would approximate a Helles?

I've been reading this forum for a while now and they talk about adding gelatin to clear it up. Do you all just add it or do you boil it first? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
