Notes

Midnight wheat is for recirculation only to add color. Historically it was used as acid in the mash for Louisville, KY water profile. Since we treat our water today, the acid from the malt isnt needed plus it adds a level of roast to the over-all flavor that just wasnt favorable to myself or other friends. Feel free to experiment but Ive tweaked this recipe probably 50+ times to reach the level of award winning and those were with the midnight wheat in recirculation. The acidulated malt in this recipe was for my specific well water profile as the midnight wheat never made much of an acid difference for me. Keep or omit per your acidification needs.
