My LHBS wants almost 3 $ a pound for flaked corn... I know it might sound crazy, but can you just use bulk no-brand corn flakes (no additives) ? We're already using minute maid rice after all...

I also saw that someone almost got flaked rye by accident, wich got me thinking of dropping the corn altoghter and replacing it with rye for that spicy crisp taste.

I think grits are what you are looking for, not cornflakes breakfast cereal. Because I don't really enjoy the corn flavor, when I make a light hybrid beer like this, I leave the corn out and use a little more rice.

I did the original recipe and it came out great, but next time I do this brew I'll definitely decrease the corn and increase the rice to minimize the corn flavor. I couldn't get crystal either so I substituted Hallertauer, and that worked out really well.

I too like Hallertauer in the light hybrid ales I brew.

Yeah just kegged my second attempt at this beer.

my 3rd will not have any Corn in it. I can't stand it. I even lowered the amount to a half pound. I must have never drank a beer with corn in it because that beer is like drinking corn of the cob.

That's what my wife says too. Too much corn for her... this is after I decreased the corn by half. She does have a very good palate, so I'm going to eliminate the corn and boost the hops a little.

+1 on adding hops. I had 1 oz of Brewers Gold in my fridge that had been there for a few months and so I decided to throw it in. 9.7% AA at 30 min. Turned out a little more bitter than I would have liked, based on the style, but it is great.
