First time using it and love it
I have used other brands of white wheat, but was very impressed with Great Western. Conversion was better than other white wheat used in the past. Will definitely buy again!

Substituted this for Briess White Wheat Malt in a Weissbier/German Hefeweizen, finished beer came out great. Excellent head retention and flavor.

tasty and convenient
Size grinds perfectly with barley, no need to change settings on my mill. Several brews with these have turned out great too.

Great Product
A must for American Wheat Beers.

Slightly smaller kernels?
I like the taste and head retention qualities of this product but lately it seems to be smaller than my base grain and I had to tighten the gap on my mill to keep my crush correct.

Makes Terrific Beers
I've done quite a number of batches using GW White Wheat Malt, for both wheat ales and for head retention. It gives a nice, light body when used at 20% or more, and yields a visually pleasing head when used at 4%. Lately, though, the kernels seem to be smaller than barley malt and I have found that I have to mill them finer than I normally would to maintain mash efficiency. Milling them separately, you quickly find out how much harder the kernels are than barley--my arm tired much quicker. It's worth the effort.
