Chocolate Wheat Malt

What it does :

Chocolate Wheat Malt is a dark roasted specialty grain. It will provide an enhanced color and malt aroma to your beer.

What it is:

Chocolate Wheat Malt is a wheat malt that is black, or 370-450 Lovibond, in color. It is produced by maltsters who roast the grain at high temperatures until the desired color is achieved. This malt contains no enzymes and little fermentables, and therefore does not require mashing.

Vital Statistics


Color (Lovibond):

375 - 450

Specific Gravity (SG):

1.038


Dosage:

Chocolate Wheat Malt can be up to 3 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.

Preparation:

Little if any starch conversion is possible for Chocolate Wheat Malt. Therefore you can either steep it in 150 F (60 C) water for 20-30 minutes to extract the desired color and flavor or add the grains directly to the mash.
