Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
What it does :
Flaked rice does not add any flavor to your beer. However, it will lower the protein and tannin content of your beer. As a result, it will lower the body of your beer. It will also help to eliminate the haze potential when used as a substitute for 6-row barley malt. Flaked rice will add a characteristic dryness to the mouthfeel. Its use can help to accentuate hop flavor in the finished beer. You can use it to make Pale Lagers.
What it is:
This is rice that has been steamed and rolled to gelatinize its starches, making them accessible for conversion to sugars. Because the grain is un-malted, it does not possess the enzymes required for this conversion by itself and it must be mashed with malted grains.
Flaked rice can be up to 10 percent of your grist.
Because it has been processed into flaked form, pre-cooking flaked rice is unnecessary to gelatinize its starches. It is ready for you to add directly to your mash to convert its starches to fermentable sugars.
