White Wheat Malt has the sweet, malty flavor of other malted grains, but with a hint of fruitiness. Wheat malts are high in protein, which helps produce fuller-bodied beers. Wheat malt can improve head formation and foam retention, depending upon the percentage and other grains in the recipe. White wheat is easier to mill than red wheat due to the bigger kernels, and more conducive to the haze characteristic of Belgian white beers. Great in any Belgian, German or American wheat beer, as well as part of the grist in any recipe.ÃÂ Can be used as up to 100% of the grain bill, but more often used as no more than 50%.
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.
Note: Sold by the pound.
