Briess Bavarian Wheat DME - Dry Malt Extract
A blend of wheat and pale malt with a neutral, malty flavor - ideal for wheat beers, or as a body- and foam-enhancing addition to other styles. Unhopped, with an SG yeild of 43 points per gallon.
Please note: the 50 pound quantity comes factory-packaged in a multi-wall paper bag with a polyliner. We recommend storage in an airtight plastic bucket or tub after opening.

Outstanding. Used it to duplicate the American Wheat extract kit from NB. Came out great. Lighter in color than the kit which is what I was looking for.
I recently made a batch of all grain Hefeweizen and another batch with this DME. Most people who tasted them both did not have a preference. Of the 3 who expressed a preference, 2 preferred the DME. Not a scientific survey of course but I preferred the DME as well and much easier than all grain.
I use a half pound of this DME with the 6 lb Bavarian Wheat LME for a starting gravity of 1.050 in My German style Weiss beers. Couple this with an authentic liquid German yeast strain for an excellent tasting wheat beer that is just as good as any all grain version without the 50% or greater wheat malt lautering issues.
Used 3.3 pounds of this in a recipe I came up with for a Bavarian hefeweizen and it tastes fantastic. I plan on getting more of this DME from NB sometime soon for a second batch. Fantastic stuff, y'all!
