Enhances the peculiar taste of wheat beers. Château Wheat Blanc malt is essential in making wheat beers but is also used in barley malt-based beers (3–5%) thanks to its protein level that gives the beer a fuller mouthfeel and enhanced head stability. Wheat has no outer husk and therefore has fewer tannins than barley. Wheat malt is much stickier than barley malt due to the higher protein content and may cause lautering problems if not given a “Protein Rest” during the mash.
STORAGE & SHELF LIFE
Malt should be stored in a clean, cool (~ 22 °C) and dry (~ 35 RH %) area. If these conditions are observed, we recommend to use all whole kernel products within 18 – 24 months from the date of manufacture and all milled products within 3 months.
