Wheat malt is made from high quality wheat. Varieties suitable for the brewing purposes are used. The malting process does not differ much from pilsner malt production. Final air-on temperature is normally between 72-80 °C.
Wheat malt is used mainly for wheat beers and some other top fermented beers. Typical rate of usage is around 50 % of the grist for wheat beers and appr. 20 % for the premium lagers.
Wheat malt can be used also for lager beers for flavor enrichment.
