I'm searching for some recipes using Jasmine or Basmati rice adjuncts.

Is there any information on the net regarding the two? My local co-op has some extremely fragrant Jasmine rice I think would be delicious in an IPA or a Pilsner.

What about wild rice? Anyone tried that? My co-op also has some Himalayan pink rice, would love to try that but not sure I want to spend the $$$.

You could brew a classic american pilsner and use the Jasmine rice instead of regular rice or maize. Also, Elysian makes a Jasmine IPA, but that is using Jasmine flowers. I bet it would go well in a kolsch also.

I do know rice has to be cooked before mashing, but I don't know for how long. You need to gelatinize the starches to let the enzymes get after them in the mash.

Fermenting: Nada
On Tap:Cran Wit, Dr Pepper Dubbel, Cascadian Pale Ale, Dark Chocolate Stout, Imperial Stout, Brown Mild, Schwarzbier
On Board: IIPA

I have brewed with Jasmine rice and the aroma doesn't really come through. After going through a cereal mash, then mashed with the rest of the grains, then boiled for an hour and finally fermented all of the aroma has left. Now when I use rice I just buy the pre-gelatinized flakes, you get the same flavor with none of the trouble.
