Weyermann Floor Malted Bohemian Wheat per pound
Part of Weyermann's line of Heirloom malts, Floor-Malted Bohemian Wheat malt boasts both historical authenticity and superb quality. Bohemian-grown wheat is expertly floor malted in Weyermann's traditional facility in the Czech Republic. Floor malting gives the malt an earthy, satisfying aroma and intense, malty flavor. High proportions of floor malted grain provide a smooth mouth feel. Floor-Malted Bohemian Wheat malt is perfect for historical brews, especially Czech wheat ales, wheat wine, and mild ales. It is also suitable wherever pale wheat malt is called for, and high-quality, hand crafted ingredients are wanted.
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.
Also, Floor-Malted Bohemian Wheat malt is comparatively low in diastatic power (62° Lintner), so although it will self convert, it will do better with another base malt in the mash.
Note: Sold by the pound.

I like to think of this as the Maris Otter of wheat malt. It’s more malt forward and flavorful than your typical American Wheat malts, and makes a noticeable difference in your beer. We had the opportunity to taste a wheat wine using this malt, and the malt characteristics were absolutely off the chain! I highly recommend this for all of your Belgian style Wits and German Hefs!
