An extract made with 60% German White Wheat and 40% German Moravian two-row barley. This malt extract, based on the malt base of the wheat beers of Bavarian, is ideal for brewing authentic German wheat beer. Like all our extracts, our German Weizenmalt is condensed at low temperatures, to retain the soft flavor and golden color only wheat malt can provide.

Approximate SRM color value of 6 pounds of extract dissolved into 5 gallons of water before boiling: 6

Pros: I used this for a....well, let's call it a Double Hefeweizen, and it worked great. I got the higher OG I wanted, and it still kept that pale, golden color I was looking for. This is a great option if you want to avoid the drama that wheat brings to an all-grain batch, too.

Cons: None

I use this often in my home brews as it helps with head retetion with my high maltede beers. It has never failed me yet. It is always fresh and I light the taste it give my lager beers.

You can make a fine Kristallweizen with this

I used this malt to make two batches of Kristallweizen, a clear, Pilsener-like wheat beer of Bavaria http://www.germanbeerinstitute.com/Kristallweizen.html I also used Wyeast 3056 Bavarian wheat yeast and some Pilsener-style hops. It turned out very clear, beautiful golden, with a subtle and excellent flavor. (A little fining helps clear it even more.) There is nothing better on hot days. With 6 lbs. malt the beer was very subtle (probably more authentically German); with 8 lbs. a little bolder and more to American taste.
