Today is Saturday the 5th of July. I just tapped this beer. My buddy Phil and the neighbors have all come over for this tapping. They were all here for the brew day of this beer. First reaction from the neighbor that only drinks Bud Light was, "Man, this is better that Bud Light. This has flavor! And it is soooo smooth." Phil, the one that I introduced to brewing that day, said, "This is some good beer. It tastes like beer...but with flavor." So, in closing I will post some pics of the beer, and I have to say I have converted two main stream drinkers into wanting to try more homebrew.

Great Lawn Mower Beer.

It is very clear the glass is frosted.

Sweet looking beer.

This can definitely turn in to a mass-brew beer once your friends get a hold of it.

Minute rice can be mashed as is . All others need a cereal mash before the mash.

That's plenty of time...I'm doing a batch this weekend for an August 2nd public event.

The corn/rice mix in this really clears very quickly.

I'd say...two weeks primary, rack to secondary with gelatin for 2 days (that's all it will take for 98% of the yeast to fall out)...then in to a keg and chill until the event.

That short stint in the secondary with gelatin will make a big difference.

Here's mine from last week after just 24 hours...notice you can see the imprint of the bucket behind the carboy.:

Great!. Thanks for the quick reply. I have two packets of safale 05 sitting at home.

Im going to use polenta i think and do a cereal mash for the corn. The flaked maize at my LHBS is silly expensive. .......................wait for it.................waaaaiiiiittttttt. opps there it is, my laziness has just dictated that i buy the $2.50 flaked corn at the LHBS.

lol, that didnt take long. no cereal mash for me now!

Any way to do this with extract? I've about had it with extract- I've got the process down good and I'm making some great tasting beers, yet I feel very held back when I look at some of these recipes. I foresee myself buying an all grain setup very soon!
