Sorry if this is already addressed, but White Minute Rice or Brown?

I recommend against using the house brand of white rice from Walmart. I tried it once and it did not go well.

Why do you say that? Just wondering since that is all I've used for 3 batches and I've had nothing but rave reviews. To me, the rice should be just for a slight ABV boost and shouldn't contribute much flavor anyways.

I have used other brands of rice with no problems but the house brand bag i tried using from Walmart just continued to clump together like a paste. It could have just been that bag buit I never had problems with the other cheaper brands I have tried.

Shoot, I left it too late to make this post. So I chose brown rice. Will that pose a problem?

Oh, ok. I thought you were saying minute rice in general. I've got no experience with the walmart stuff myself, but good to know.

No say on the brown rice. It should have the same extract potential, but I'm not sure about the flavor impact.

I always used the boxed 5 min rice from Walmart. I think the stuff your referring to is 15 min rice. Which you would have to let soak in water before dumping it in with your mesh. Never used brown rice, I assume that would impact flavor somehow.

I used brown rice on my last batch. No noticeable flavor impact.
