Red Wheat Flakes - Briess 1oz
Briess Insta Grains® Red Wheat Flakes are produced specifically for brewing,developing characteristics necessary for easy and efficient use in a brewhouse. The process of gelatinizing makes the starches readilysoluble 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.
There is no need to mill red Wheat Flakes. However, they can be putthrough 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 flavor profile than Wheat Malt.
