Flaked Maize 500g bag

Flaked maize (corn) is pre gelatinised and mash ready brewing adjunct and distillers ingredient. The pre gelatinized flakes will give a higher yiled and a more trouble free brew than conventional flaked corn and does not contain any unwanted additives. Flaked maize has been degermed (ie the oil removed) to eliminate rancidity. Do not mill flaked maize.

Used in beer brewing recipes such as American Pilsners maize lends a dryer finish, lightens the body and a lighter colour, clearing well due to it's low nitrogen content. Flaked maize can be used up to 20% of the grist in single infusion beer. Maize is not restricted to lagers, it is found in Rochefort Trappist beers and American Cream Ales to increase alcohol without adding extra heaviness.

Flaked Maize is also used when making corn whiskeys such as moonshine.
