Rice Flakes - OiO 1oz
Flaked Rice from Canada Malting Company (CMC) is rice that has undergone a process of being steamed and then rolled to create flakes. Flaked rice is a popular adjunct grain used in brewing because it is a source of fermentable sugars without adding color or a strong flavor. It can lead to a lighter body, drier finish, and higher alcohol content in the beer, making it an excellent choice for brewers aiming to create a beer with a cleaner and crisper taste.
Suitable beer styles for flaked rice include:
Light Lager: Flaked rice is often used in American Light Lagers to lighten the body and color while providing a crisp finish.
Japanese Rice Lager: This type of lager typically uses rice as an adjunct, contributing to its characteristic light and refreshing quality.
Cream Ale: Brewers may use flaked rice in cream ales to achieve a lighter body and a clean, crisp profile.
Pre-Prohibition Lager: Flaked rice can be used to replicate historical recipes that incorporated rice as an adjunct.
Brut IPA: Flaked rice can be suitable for this style to achieve a dry and effervescent beer with a lighter body.
