Pretty much this. Lots of hops for first wort hopping, the odd batch of coffee grains but otherwise a mash is a mash. The rest is added to the boil!


Oh yeah, almost forgot. Iíve added coffee and cocoa to the mash as well.


Any tannic extraction from boiling the coffee?

None that Iíve noticed.

Probably because the ground beans are left behind in the mash tun.

Iíve been using corn starch in place of flaked corn for years a la Papazian.
Itís cheaper, less likely to be stale, and doesnít glop up your mash with goo.

Does the corn starch convert nearly 100% to glucose resulting in a mash runoff that is crystal clear?

With flaked maize I get a flavor contribution to the beer. Does that happen with corn starch or is it just like adding straight glucose?

It imparts about half the corny flavor that flaked does. I usually calculate it as flaked when making a recipe. Iím not a huge fan of Miller level corniness, so it works well for me. The starch converts well and the beer finishes up clear post-ferm.

Certainly not, since that would violate the Reinheitsgebot!
