CHARACTERISTICS / APPLICATIONS

  • Torrified Wheat has been heat treated to break the cellular structure, allowing more rapid hydration and malt enzymes to more completely attack the starches and protein.

  • Torrified Wheat can be used in place of raw wheat when making Belgian-style White and Wit beers.

  • Advantages over raw wheat include normal conversion time and higher yield.

  • Mill medium coarse.

  • Add to the mash along with the malt.

  • Mash as usual

  • To increase lautering time, include a small amount of rice hulls.

  • Can be used up to 40% of the total grist bill.
