What's the diastatic power of this in ° Lintner? It seems to list at 188 in the example batch. (There's a typo) Most sources online list the diastatic power for wheat malts at around half of this though. Does this truely have ~188 ° Lintner?

Flavorful Bready Wheat Malt
This is my wheat malt of choice. Smells amazing in the mash and is just as good in the glass. Stands out against other maltsters I have tried over the years (Briess and Rahr). Give it a try!

Great for Wheat beers
Paired with Oats and 2 Row to make a great NEIPA with awesome mouthfeel. I will likely use in other house beers to add mouthfeel and assist in head retention.

fantastic malt to use for head retention
This malt doesn't add a ton of color - but definitely body and flavor. It's great at this price, but I wouldn't pay more than 2 row prices for it.

First time using it and love it
I have used other brands of white wheat, but was very impressed with Great Western. Conversion was better than other white wheat used in the past. Will definitely buy again!

Substituted this for Briess White Wheat Malt in a Weissbier/German Hefeweizen, finished beer came out great. Excellent head retention and flavor.

tasty and convenient
Size grinds perfectly with barley, no need to change settings on my mill. Several brews with these have turned out great too.
