Liquid Malt Extract (Wheat)
What it does :
Use this extract to make wheat beers. Wheat liquid malt extract augments the base fermentable for your beer and eliminates the need for you to mash whole grains. It can be up to 40 percent of the fermentables by weight. The remaining fermentables are provided by barley extract, base malts and specialty grains that add unique flavor, aroma, and color characteristics to the beer.
What it is:
Liquid Malt Extract (Wheat) is a wheat malt extract product that is pale straw, or 2 Lovibond, in color. It is made from the fermentable sugars that have been extracted from malted wheat. The extract manufacturers produce wort on an industrial scale and then reduce it to a syrupy, fermentable product ready for use.
Liquid Malt Extract (Wheat) is a base malt and can be 5-70 percent of your grist. Of course, the actual amount you need depends on the style of beer that you are making. Use our brewing calculators to compute the exact amount you need to achieve your specific original gravity and color targets.
Because liquid extract is highly viscous, you should soak the container in hot water prior to use so that the extract will flow easily into the brew pot. Dry malt extract can be easier to handle and is slightly more fermentable per unit weight.
