All mashed in and tucked up for an overnight mash.Put a recipe together for Popcorn Porter using the robust porter style and the smell of chocolate and popcorn is making me hungry though my missus was overly impressed...

pop a handful of grain in the popcorn maker, you can getaway with 2-3x the amount of grain as you would add popcorn as it wont pop and take up more room.

if when running the grain isnt mixing and turning over with the hot air blown through it you have too much grain in there..

Keep an eye on it and you should see a gradual change as it toasts..

No slow cookers here, just slow eaters (looking at daughter)
Thanks for the tip anyway!

How's it looking? I've never used popcorn for a beer before, so interested to hear if the toasted flavour comes through

Preboil gravity is 12 Brix - 1048
Wasn't expecting that for sure.This may end up on the imperial side...

Why would you want to do this? how does "popped corn" benefit any beer?

No idea but I'll find for sure and besides it'll do no harm to try something different....
