Product Details
We bring you this domestic wheat malt from Rahr Maltings, in Shakopee MN. It’s a great base malt for any style wheat beer. It has a doughy, malty, bready flavor and aroma, with white wheat having a slightly milder wheat flavor than red wheat. High protein levels in wheat lend a fullness of body and excellent head retention, but can lead to difficulty sparging. Use small amounts to enhance foam, or use up to 50% of the grist. We recommend incorporating rice hulls to prevent a stuck sparge when using greater than 25%. 3°L

I'd like to use about 50% grist in an IPA, roughly 6lbs. Will I need to do a protein rest? I don't mind if it's hazy though.

BEST ANSWER: There is no need to do a protein rest if you don't mind a hazy beer. The beer will be hazy even with a protein rest using wheat for 50% of your grist. I hope that this helps! Cheers, NB Brewmasters

Our Customer David J asked that we pass along his answer as well. Here is what he wrote:
"If you don't mind your beer being hazy, you do not need to do a protein rest.
However, with the amount that you are using it may be extremely hazy."
