Default Popcorn Kernels.

Have been looking at a few recipes for light Lagers for SWMBO and noticed that they like their corn.Done some investigating and have seen a few using Popcorn.Now the popcorn must not be shelf bought microwaved or pre-sweetened/salted in a bag.I've recently purchased this which I intend to cook off in a dry pot and add to the mashtun.Just looking to see if anyone else has tried or their views.

Not a clue Gerry but is that light as in ABV or light as in body/flavour?

get yourself a �£10 hot air kernel popping machine..

for an example (not a recommendation of the seller..)
it will let you pop corn and 'toriffy' wheat, and toast barley in small batches and even roast coffee beans too

and you can have some cheap healthy sofa snacks too..

Both.I'm looking to clone something similar to Coors Light for the missus and I'm going to use these regardless but just looking to see if others had tried before.

Okay, my daghter watched over my shoulder and said Oh my god. Now, if you can explain how it toasts barley in small batches I cannot do but buy one.

If you have a slow cooker you might try that.It took about 4 hours to do that FV but the aroma was amazing...
