German Dark Wheat per pound
Weyermann Dark Wheat malt boasts both historical authenticity and superb quality. Dark Wheat produces beers with gently toasted wheat characteristics, including notes of bread, biscuit, caramel and light toffee. This is the perfect malt for weizenbocks and more malt forward styles, both ale and lager. It adds an extra dimension of wheat character, as well as helping with head formation and foam retention. Us at a rate of up to 50% for any wheat style that you are home brewing, or add up to 10% for in any beer for added complexity.
Keep in mind that wheat is a husk-less malt, and can stick your mash if there is a significant amount in your recipe. Make sure to counteract this by using rice hulls in the mash.

This malt is for all of the die hard dunkel brewers out there! This malt is kind of like wheat and munich malt had a love child, and is a great sub for when you want the head formation and foam retention from a malted wheat, but also want some of those gently toasted, bready, baked goods, biscuity flavors. Even though it€™s only about 8 Lovibond, the range of flavor is way more than you€™d expect from such a small difference. If you€™re trying to make a Franziskaner clone, this is an absolute must! While it will work in just about any beer where you€™d add wheat, keep in mind the munich-y, caramel 10 kinds of flavors it throws off and plan accordingly.
Note: Sold by the pound.
