There is no need to do a cereal mash on Minute Rice. That's why I prefer it. It is already cooked. Just toss it into the mash tun with all the other grist.
This recipe, because it has a lighter barley bill, will clear up pretty nicely.
Several things help a lot:
- A good hard boil
- Whirlfloc tablets (or irish moss) the last 15 minutes of boil
- 1/2Tbs of unflavored gelatin dissolved in 1/2 cup of hot water (not boiling) added to the secondary or the keg after fermentation is complete.
