Found the following but it's for sweet potatoes:  "These results suggested that rapid heating of sweet potato mashes to 80°C may be optimal for starch conversion and handling of sweet potato mashes prepared for ethanolic fermentation."

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I made a sweet potato alt last year.  I boiled the potatoes before adding them to the mash.
