Well, any difference? Can I use them interchangeably?

Ok thanks. I did do a search, from my iPod but the mobile app never searches quite right.

The answer is "maybe".

If you are using any adjunct, like rice or oatmeal, use the "quick", "minute", "instant" etc. version of these. I.e., if the instructions say to microwave for 30 seconds, then you can use them directly in the mash. Quick Oats, Instant Rice, etc. are ok. Their starches have already been gelatinized through heat, pressure, or both.

If the instructions require you to boil for 10 minutes to serve, then you will need to do this also before you use them in your mash. Otherwise, the enzymes won't be able to break down the starches in those cereals.

All starches have to be gelatinized to make they accessible to the enzymes during the mash.

Note that you must mash adjuncts like rice, corn, and oats with barley because they contain no enzymes.

The search function for non paying members is crap. If you purchase the membership you get nifty features like searching titles only, sub forums and even able to search for usernames. I hate this "search" for it **** when the regular search function is absolutely useless and pulls up junk/dead tops most of the time.
