I’m making my first AG wheat beer this weekend. Its from Jamil’s Brewing Classic Styles. It calls for
7# Wheat Malt
plus some character grains.
The guy at my LHBS says the wheat malt won’t convert, not enough pils for the necessary enzymes. I assume it wouldn’t be in Jamil’s book if it didn’t work. I can’t find any info in my brewing books about whether wheat malt will self convert? Help? Who’s right.
