Midnight Wheat malt 550º L, also known as American Roasted Wheat, is arguably the smoothest and least astringent husk-less malt available. Midnight Wheat is a good choice for Black Lagers and Black IPA's. It provides a smooth, slightly sweet flavor profile at higher percentages, with some light roasted flavors.
Use 1 – 2% for added color and color adjustment, 2 – 5% for color and smooth roasty flavors, and up to 7% for more forward roasted notes and dark, black color.
Note: Sold by the pound.
