We bring you this domestic wheat malt from Rahr Maltings, in Shakopee MN. It's a great base malt for any style wheat beer. It has a doughy, malty, bready flavor and aroma, with white wheat having a slightly milder wheat flavor than red wheat.
High protein levels in wheat lend a fullness of body and excellent head retention, but can lead to difficult sparging. Use small amounts to enhance foam, or use up to 50% of the grist. We recommend incorporating rice hulls to prevent a stuck sparge when using greater than 25%. 3°L
Beer Types: Belgian White, Wheat Beer
Substitutions: Red Wheat, German Wheat
