Torrefied Wheat per pound
Torrefied Wheat by Crisp Malting. Use torrefied wheat in addition to or in place of flaked wheat as an adjunct up to 40% of the mash. Very popular for traditional wheat and Belgian styles, as well as for Sour styles.
'Popping' the grains by torrefication makes the starches available to the enzymes in the mash. Expect a different, fuller wheat flavor, as you would from flaked wheat.
Note: Sold by the pound.

Think of Torrefied ( or Torrified ) Wheat as the perfect balance between Flaked Wheat and Un Malted Wheat. The malster ( in our case Crisp Malting ) ‘pops’ the kernel, breaking down walls and making the starches available to the enzyme, but doesn’t go through the mill to make them flaked and finish the job. Consider it if you’re trying to perfect your favorite hazy as a very flavorful, ‘Wheaty’ alternative to flaked wheat!
