Dark Wheat Malt - Weyermann
Weyermann® Dark Wheat is a gently kilned malt made from high-quality German wheat. It contributes a mild golden colour to wort and a robust malty-sweet flavour with notes of bread, biscuit, toffee, and caramel. Wheat malts are high in protein, which helps produce fuller-bodied beers. Wheat malt can also improve head formation and retention, depending upon the other grist constituents. In top-fermented beers, Weyermann® Dark Wheat malt performs especially well, adding creaminess, body, and complex wheat flavours. Weyermann® Dark Wheat malt has a somewhat 'drier', more complex character than pale wheat malts. It's the signature malt for Bavarian Dunkelweizen, and perfect for Weizenbocks, Kölsch, and Altbiers
Recommended Maximum Usage: 2-3% for improved body and head retention, up to 100% for traditional wheat beers.
Typical Beer Styles: Bavarian Dunkelweizen, Weizenbocks, Kölsch, Witbier, Altbier
