Flaked White Wheat offers the benefits of unmalted wheat in a convenient flaked form. Unmalted wheat has a strong grain flavor, and a very light straw color.
It is used in many traditional Belgian styles to add flavor and cloudiness, and improve head formation.
Unlike raw, whole grains, the starch in flaked wheat is pre-gelatinized, so a separate cereal mash is usually unnecessary. However, the protein content is high. Depending upon use, a protein rest may be required.
- Use in the production of Belgian Wit beers.
- Use up to 40% as a cereal adjunct in the total grist.
- Use 0.5-1.0% to a standard brew to increase foam stability.
