  • $1.55

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.
