Title: English Barleywine (Dark) recipe in Nov/Dec 2010 issue
Post by: kgs on November 23, 2010, 09:22:29 pm
This recipe calls for 1.5 pounds of "Wheat." I am sorry to be such a n00b, but is that wheat malt, or flaked wheat? If I see "wheat" listed, can I usually assume one or the other?

Since this is one of Gordon's articles he can give you the definitive answer, but in general if a recipe calls for wheat then it is unmalted wheat.

Sorry, I meant wheat malt.  My assumption is that grains in a beer recipe are malted unless otherwise specified.  I have no idea if there is a standard or convention; it's just how I talk about it.  I'll try to remember this for future articles; as you can see, a reasonable person drew the wrong conclusion, so the info was ambiguous.

I usually have a sack of Durst wheat around, so that's what I'm most likely to have used.

:o
I'm reasonable?  ;D

Thanks for the correction Gordon, I think I need to re-examine some recipes I've read, and keep that in mind when reading your articles :)
