Have been down the sweet corn, different corn, baked/roasted sweet corn road and it lead me to nowhere...

Glad to see it worked for you Odin...
But as you can see in previous posts on this thread it made no difference to my wash.
There is something fundametally different in the ingredients I am using that makes for a neutral with little to no corn flavour.
The first and only time I got any flavour it was with feed corn.
I've had sweet corn that was roasted and you could smell the flavours there.
It just didn't transfer to the wash.
So far I''ve concentrated on the corn as it seemed the most likely problem,
Then it was the pH
Now I am looking at the water.
As said I have never had a cap on my ferments before and this one has it......
Can only keep plugging away at the problem until I crack the code.
To be fair to some of the posters that felt I would get the corn flavour after oaking...
Waaaaaaaay in the background of some of my oaked UJ there is a tiny bit of corn flavour, but not enough to scream success.
I had success once
Will have it again.
Soon as I crack it you blokes will hear about here on this thread. Loud and proud
Just glad to hear there are others out there with the same problem... I was beginning to feel like it was just me or that my posts would be taken as a bad joke.
