      malt extract has no active enzymes to contribute to a grain mash; they
      would have been destroyed during processing. You'll need to use properly
      crushed fresh barley malt as your enzyme "adjunct" if you want a corn
      whiskey.

      as to amounts, this is a good question. Technically it depends on the
      diastatic power of your malt. Anyone have a good average figure?
