Wheat Malt is an ideal foundation grain for continental European wheat beer styles like Hefeweizen and Kristallweizen, and an essential ingredient in American style wheat ales. It adds very little colour to wort but contributes a robust, malty-sweet flavour with notes of bread, nuts, biscuit, toffee, and light caramel. Wheat Malt is high in protein, which helps produce fuller-bodied beers. Wheat Malt can also improve head formation and retention, depending upon the other grain bill constituents. In top-fermented (Ale) beers, Wheat Malt performs especially well, adding creaminess, body, and complex wheat flavours.
