Ingredients:
5 lbs cracked corn, sold as bird food
8 lbs light barley malt
1/2 lb Crystal (40L.)
yeast from the bottom of a Saisson Dupont bottle
4 oz whole Hallertau
Procedure:
Mash corn at 110, for an hour, then 140 for another hour. Stir lots,
since its sticky.
Mash malted barley as usual at 110, 148, 140, 160. I used a separate
pot for the 110 1/2 hour protein rest, and then just tossed into the
corn grits.

Mash water was around 26-30 quarts. Sparge to about 6 gallons after
at least 3 hours in the 140-160 range.

Hops to taste, depending on what you're making. The yeast from the
bottom of a Saisson Dupont bottle really does well with the corn
content, but make sure you like that kind of beer first. 4 oz whole
Hallertau for 7 gallons of wort sounds about right, but hey, adjust
to your tastes.
