self-rising cornmeal

Postby msh » Sat Apr 21, 2012 3:34 pm

My wife bought 2 bags of self-rising cornmeal thinking they would be useful for me. I understand there's other ingredients, but can't find any reference to anyone using it for mash. Has anyone here tried it?

self rising flour has addition of baking soda and some dry form of acid.
they cancel each other out and create CO2.
I would think that it should be fine for a UJSM style wash. make a few extra bubbles in the beginning, but will even out soon enough.

Give strong drink to him who is perishing,
And wine to those who are bitter of heart.
Let him drink and forget his poverty,
And remember his misery no more.

I haven't used it but it is just corn flour and a little baking power and salt added. Not sure about the salt in the ferment though.
