Updated Briess COVID-19 statement

Flakes

Briess produces a line of pregelatinized flakes in a food-grade heat processing plant. The flakes, like all Briess ingredients, are natural as no artificial colors, flavors or additives are used in processing — just heat and moisture. They are offered in 25-pound bags and totes.

Brewers Barley Flakes

Slightly grainy

Use as an adjunct in all-grain brews to produce a lighter colored finished beer without lowering the original gravity. The flakes can be incorporated directly into your mash with other grains because they have a large surface area and are pre-cooked so they hydrate and disintegrate quickly. They can be used in place of corn as an adjunct to eliminate corn flavor in the finished beer.

Brewers Yellow Corn Flakes Non-GMO

Fresh corn flavor

Use to produce a beer with mild, less malty flavor and a drier, more crisp beer. These can be used as a cereal adjunct and can be added to the mash without first using a cereal cooker. The pregelatinized flakes will give a higher yield and a more trouble-free brew than conventional flaked corn. You can add them directly to the mash with the malt without having to mill.
