Flaked Red Wheat - Briess

These wheat flakes are great in the production of Belgian Wit beers and increase foam stability. They have a large surface area and are pre-cooked, so they hydrate and disintegrate quickly.

Briess Red Wheat Flakes have been produced specifically for brewing. The process of gelatinizing makes the starches readily soluble and digestible by the naturally occurring enzymes in barley malt. This allows the flakes to be incorporated directly into the mash with other grains.

Because flakes have a large surface area and are pre-cooked, they hydrate and disintegrate quickly. Filtration time will be normal. There is no need to mill Red Wheat Flakes. However, they can be put through the mill if that is the easiest means of adding them to the mash.

Pregelatinized Red Wheat Flakes can be used in place of Wheat Malt to make Wheat Beer. Flakes will yield a different flavour profile than Wheat Malt.
