Bust out the DME!
I should of listen more to the other review that stated poor efficiency with this grain. My numbers also came out low. I don't know if it was this particular crop or how it was stored but I got very little conversion and had to compensate with adding DME. For some reason so far I have had some bad luck with Briess grains. I know this because I always get good efficiency with the other brand I mostly use. So hmm?

Poor efficiency
This batch of wheat malt didn't mash in well. I made standard Hef with 60% wheat malt and mash kept compacting down. Never had that problem so i suspect it was the wheat malt which resulted in a poor efficiency and I had to add 1-1/4 DME to 5 gal batch to compensate

Nice product, lighter in color and more affordable than white wheat
I would have to compare this side by side with white wheat to really know the flavor difference, but from my experience it's minimal. I have use both with great results. This is actually lighter than white wheat and works great with pilsen malt for a light and crisp american wheat. I like to add fruit after cold crashing and racking to secondary. I have also used it in a NEIPA thats currently bubbling away. Briess is yet to disappoint!

Prefer the flavor of this to regular wheat
I like the extra flavor this seems to get over the regular white wheat. Not for all beers like a paler wheat beer perhaps but nice for the maltier Dunkelweisens and Rye Bocks I've been experimenting with.
