For all traditional wheat beer styles, the Dried Wheat Malt Extract provides body and richness and is essential for brewing German Style Wheat Beers and a small amount aids in head retention for a variety of beer styles.
Formulation of Wheat Dried Malt Extract emulates the recipe ratio of many classic German wheat beers.
For creating a wheat beer with a gravity of 1.050 in a 5 – gallon batch, 1 can of Wheat malt extract and 3 lbs. of Dried Wheat malt extract in conjunction with noble hop varieties such as Hallertau, Tettnanger or Saaz and a German wheat yeast creates a delicious version of German wheat. For Dunkelweizen, steep small amounts of Carafa Malt and in 150 F water for 20 minutes and add wheat extract following removal of spent grains.
Kicker amount of dry extract will typically add .009 points of gravity in most recipes. Brew and Grow recommends using malt extract for quick adjustments of deficient gravity in all grain recipes.
