Briess CBW® Bavarian Wheat DME is 100% pure malt extract made from 65% Malted Wheat / 35% Malted Barley. Used alone, it will produce a light golden colored wheat beer. Specialty grains can be added to change the color and flavor, making it an excellent malt base for any wheat beer style. Wheat malt can also be used in smaller proportions to increase head retention in any beer style.
- Color: 3º Lovibond

Tip: To convert a recipe from LME (liquid malt extract) to DME (dry malt extract)
Use the following calculation: (Pounds LME x 34) / 42
Tip: Dry Malt Extract is Hygroscopic, meaning it will absorb moisture and tends to clump. To dissolve, warm your brewing water, stir in the extract until thoroughly dissolved, then bring to a boil. This works better than trying to stir it into a steaming, boiling kettle.
