Wheat Malt - OiO - 1lb
Wheat malt differs from typical barley malts in a few ways:
- It makes for sweeter brews, though usually with less flavour.
- It has better head retention than barley, due to more proteins in the wheat.
- I tends to work better when combined with other grains, due to it potentially becoming sticky and difficult to lauter.
Wheat malts are mostly used to add unique flavours to a barley brew, or to make a proper Wheat Beer or Witbier.
|Description:||Perfect for full-fledged wheat beers and as a component for all types of ales and lagers, OiO Canadian Wheat Malt is sourced from the best grains and delivers excellent flavour and usability.
Wheat malt is a very popular ingredient, used not just as a base malt for Heffeweizens, Weizenbocks, and Witbiers, but also as a specialty malt that promotes fuller body and better head retention in almost any beer style.
Canadian Wheat imparts a somewhat sweet flavour with a distinct texture that makes for a more mellow mouthfeel. Can be used for up to 80% of the grain bill.
