wheat malt

Postby dougms46 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 12:08 pm

I'm doing my first wheat beer and was wondering if anyone had some thoughts on the ratio of wheat and barley in the mash .

Weizen

I think German law requires that a beer be at least 50% Wheat Malt to be called a Weizen. I think anywhere from 40/60 to 60/40 should be fine, leaning toward less wheat if you have any trouble lautering on your system.

Does It tend to create a stuck sparge ?

It could, depends on a few factors, crush, sparge rate. If you're concerned add some rice hulls.
