Rolled Wheat - Blue Lake Milling (AUS) - 1kg Bag
Flaked wheat can be a useful substitute for raw grain. While it retains much of the special character of the raw product, flaked wheat is much easier to handle, primarily because it requires no milling. Like flaked barley, maize, and oats, it can be added directly to the barley malt in any mash. It is, however, much more expensive than raw wheat. Like raw wheat, it’s especially suitable for drier, crisper beers than for Bavarian-style weissbiers.
