i have made fullers but it looks good but i not sure about the flaked maize as i think that may lighten the body of the beer or flavour reducing i know jm loves maize in a bitter

I think that the max % for flaked maize is 10 %...this recipie has about 7 %.... you are right about lightening the body.....however the maize is meant to impart a subtle corn flavour as well....i really don't kbow but as this is the first time i have mashed with it......

Anyone have some advice about the use of flaked maize?

Hi GI,
The recipe looks good however I tend to think the same as Jasman re the flaked maize.
At the quantity you have chosen it should be OK and after all it is an experiment.
What I tend to do is to only go for about 5% when I am trying something unless it is a really dark grain in which case I go a lot less again.
I have no Target hops so I would use say Northern Brewer.
Give it a go and let us all know how it goes.

On another note I have just noticed that I have been using the same quote from Henny Youngman as you for a signature.
I apologise for this and I will change mine immediately as I only came across this quote about 3 or 4 weeks ago. - It is a good one tho'.

Cheers
