Grains (Flaked)

Flaked grains are adjuncts, meaning any source of starch that is not malted. They are generally divided into two groups, kettle, and mashable. Flaked grains fall into the mashable category; they must be mashed to create fermentable and unfermentable sugars. Flaked grains are made by treating with steam and crushing the grain flat. Torrified grains are made by heating until they pop, like puffed wheat. By adding flaked grain adjuncts to beer recipes, homebrewers can improve the flavor and texture of their beer recipes.
