[GN137] This is the primary base malt used in many wheat beers. Weizenbier, Weiss Bier, Hefeweizen all routunely use red wheat malt as a base in their recipes. This malt has a unique, malty flavor that is very discernable in the resulting beer. It also adds a smooth, creamy body to the beer with some rich, wheat flour flavors. Red wheat malt can also be used in smaller amounts to increase the beer's head retention. Add a 1/2 pound to a typical 6 gallon mash. It is also recommended that rice hulls be added to the mash if red wheat malt represents 40% or more of the grain bill. This will help to keep the mash flowing during the lautering process.
