Much (over here at least. I think flaked maize is really cheap in the states). I've been working on a super cheap beer recipe, cornflakes being part of it.

Me too. Thats why I'm making it. Table sugar and cornflakes to replace a third of the malt. Low OG, and Low IBU so it doesnt need much hops. Only two hop additons and the bittering additon of high AA% hops added at 90 min boil so it doesnt take much. Cheap as chips

Fuggles 15g @ 15m
First Gold 15g @ 15m

Intended to add the same hopping of F & FG @ 0 mins, but must have been distracted or something as they were still in a bowl as the GF emptied.

So, looks like a hop tea addition to get the length back out to the intended 25L.

On the plus side, got very good efficiency with the low-ish mass grain bill and maybe a hop tea or dry hop will get better hop flavour at the end.
Which one is this? I had a bottle of arrowaine last week and really enjoyed it.

To make it really cheap limit the hops to jumping round your kitchen on one leg! Cornflakes. ...try coco pops and do a choccy stout!

Fully support the aim to make corn flakes actually taste of something.

Brewed a Pliny The Elder IPA clone yesterday based on Bertus Brewery's 4th recipe. Dry hop in primary on day 4, rack to secondary on day 7 and dry hop again. Bottle a week later.

No idea what Pliny The Elder tastes like, but surely I'll get a decent IPA for my efforts.

It was going to be Orfy's Hobgoblin clone, but I did not have any Goldings, so I used First Gold instead. Also I has Herkules open in the freezer, so used them for bittering. My timings look different to Orfy's mainly due to the length of time it takes to get the GF down to 80C or so - 5 mins to sterilise the counter-flow chiller and maybe 5 more to cool down.

A search probably takes you to a thread on Jim's.

Next Saturday an allgrain IPA in the brewing course (it was either IPA of bock). I asked if individual adjustments were allowed: yes they were
So I'm gonna bring some extra dme and Chinook for the imperial version!
