Wheat Malt BLUE OX
Base malt for producing wheat centered beers. Wheat malts are high in protein, which helps produce fuller-bodied beers. Wheat malt can improve head formation and retention, depending upon the other grist constituents.
Wheat malt from Blue Ox Malthouse in Lisbon Falls, Maine is a red wheat, but is lighter in color than some other red wheat products. From Blue Ox: "Malted from a Spring Red Wheat, this malt gives a richer, medium tone and body with a grainy aroma, and glow of protein haze. With a light color at 2 SRM, high extract, and excellent body, this sweet and grainy malt can be used as an addition for flavor and character or for a up to 50% or more of the grain bill."
