Weyermann Pale Wheat malt is an ideal foundation grain for continental wheat beer styles like Hefeweizen and Kristallweizen, and an essential ingredient in North American wheat ales. This German wheat malt adds very little color to wort but contributes a robust, malty-sweet flavor with notes of bread, nuts, toffee, and light 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® Pale Ale malt performs especially well, adding creaminess, body, and complex wheat flavors.
