Adding torrefied wheat to a brew at 2-5% is a well known and reliable way of adding a complex protein matrix to your beer whilst maintaining stable head formation and retention. With the rise of the NEIPA, hazy and smooth beer is becoming more popular. We thought it would be really interesting to try out our torrefied wheat in a NEIPA and it worked really well. At an inclusion of 15- 20% we achieved a stable haze and a solid mouthfeel that pair perfectly with a citrussy hop addition.
We also tried 50% torrefied wheat in a typical wheat beer recipe which produced a more cereal and grain forward taste making a refreshing summer wheat beer.
Suitable for all beer styles. Ideal for mouthfeel and head retention. We recommend trying out a high inclusion of torrefied wheat 10-15% to add a smooth mouthfeel and give a stable haze to your beers.

Malt is the backbone to any great beer recipe, ensuring you have the best quality freshest malt can really improve your brews.
Our malt comes from the same maltsers that professional breweries use. All of our malt is purchased whole/uncrushed, which ensures that it retains the correct moisture levels as the maltster intended.
When you order malt from The Malt Miller we offer it crush fresh, or whole so you can crush it fresh at home using your own mill, or fine crushed for Brew In A Bag brewing. When we crush it for you it is done only when ordered, this ensures you can be sure of freshness and also receive the correct mix of big and small particles.
