Description

Made in the USA by Briess, this Bavarian Wheat Dry Malt Extract (DME) is the perfect fermentable base for all your traditional wheat beers.
 
After Briess' proprietary multi-step mash program, the wort is placed under a vacuum evaporator to gently remove the water while preserving the wort's full, rich flavor and minimizing additional color development. The mash program ensures high Free Amino Nitrogen (FAN) to ensure good yeast health and a high degree of fermentability.
 
Production in the USA spares Briess extracts from long periods of time in shipping containers and ports, and ensures that you are brewing with the freshest extract available.
 
And Briess extracts are always 100% All Malt with no adjuncts or additional sugars.
 
Produced from 65% wheat malt and 35% barley.

Easy to add to the wort after mash to eliminate the possibility of a stuck mash using wheat malt. I use this for adding a bit of wheat to my Kolsch-Style recipe.

Always add 1# of wheat malt to a brew. Gives a nice, clean, frothy head.

This is as good as you can purchase. Compared to the LME it is easier to get out of packages.

Great fo making Heff
Really simple process to make a good Hefferwiessen. 2 of these and some german hops are all that's needed to get a pretty passable Heff. I used 1oz of Hallertau Mittelfruh Hops (Pellets).
Boil for 1 hour and you are done, apart from adding some yeast when it is all cooled down.
