White wheat malt from Briess is a classic American-grown white wheat with a range of uses. It is commonly used as the base of a wheat beer, either used as part or all of the base for many fine wheat beers. Although Briess is an American maltster, Briess' white wheat is often used to great success in German wheat beers and Belgian witbiers.
In addition to being used a a base malt, a small portion of white wheat can be used as part of a grist to improve head retention, body and foam stability. British beers have sometimes traditionally used a small portion for just this reason. Flavors from Briess white wheat include somewhat sweet, malty and doughy, with a distinct wheat character.
