Minute Rice

Just brewed a cream ale recipe. The grainbill included minute rice. What does it add to my beer?

Like most adjuncts, it’s contributing starch, and therefore sugar, and not much else. So like any simple sugar, it’ll lighten the beer while having very little flavor impact.

Most cream ale recipes I’ve seen would use corn instead.

I’ve used different types of corn and rice in my cream ales and American Lagers and there really is not a huge difference.
