The brown in brown rice is the aleurone layer. The starch is what's being converted so I'm saying no difference.

Made this for the first time a couple weeks ago, also for my BMC friends, and It's not too bad after only a few days in the keg. It has a little creamed corn taste I'm hoping will fade a bit(used grits instead of flaked corn), but it should be a winner once it's good and carbed up.

Cream of Three Crops on the left. Bud Light Lime on the right. My batch has a noticeable corn flavor. Not overpowering but you can tell its there in the aftertaste. Def a good lawnmower beer though.

It was so clear coming out of the boil kettle, I wanted to get a picture of it. I only did a 60 minute boil, but until I got down to the last 3 to 4 inches in my 5 gallon brew kettle, you could see straight through it. I don't know what it is about this grain bill, but it is crystal clear compared to other recipes from start to finish. This is one of my go-to recipes, and always will be. Thank you so much.
How did this turn out with Denny's? I just brewed this yesterday and pitched 1/2 of a cake of Denny's into the fermenter. I am hoping that it does something interesting with the mouthfeel of this grain bill.

On another note, this is the first time pitching an unwashed cake portion - I forgot to add O2, but had active fermentation within 20min. I am hoping that the lack of O2 is ok since the yeast wont need as much to reproduce much considering I likely overpitched anyways. Also, I forgot to add my whirlflock in.... Do you think a few days at 35 degrees and some gelatine will clear this out even without the kettle fining?

I think the rice does not make a difference , surely not much if any . Maybe you just got a real good mash . I get higher OG's than called for sometimes because I get real good efficiency most of the time . But then I get FG of 1.011 almost all the time so ??? Only got below that using kits .

Just about to finish off my last couple bottles of this . Crap . Out of beer . I got lazy . Am going to brew another batch this weekend. I usually have about 8 cases all the time . I am slipping .
I might also do an extract of this to save some time and have two batches going . Great beer!
