Thinking of a pseudo amber lager Common Beer using potato starch as adjuncts. Finding flaked potato is simple. And from what I read has a PPG of 37. The gelitinization of Sweet potato is mash temps. Also being 80% water its 40 PPG/5 lbs of fresh sweet about. Must be boiled and whipped. Added directly to the mash. Anyone have any experience? Thank you.

I have a friend that I brew with that makes a sweet potato red ale that i got to say is pretty damn tasty. I do know that he boils the potato’s till they are semi soft and adds them to primary for two weeks.
