Midnight Wheat Malt - 550L - 1 lb.

Midnight Wheat provides dark color, 550 L, with the smoothest flavor of any black malt. The bitterness of black grains comes primarily from tannins in the grain's husk, as wheat has no husk there's no bitterness to remove. The result is a mellow roastiness that only becomes apparent at higher usage rates. This malt features in our Dark of the Moon Black IPA to prevent roasted flavors from overwhelming the hop character.
