midnight wheat yield
« on: December 28, 2012, 05:18:12 PM »
Anyone know what the extract potential or yield is for midnight wheat? I have seen everything from 1.025 to 1.032 and Briess doesn't list it in their pdf specs.

Briess responded that the yield of midnight wheat is typically between 65 and 75% on a dry basis. Seems like a pretty large range but at least I got some info

I would just use 1.029 and call it good.  I wouldn't imagine you would be using enough of it that a few points in either direction is going to matter?

Yeah, it's mostly just a color malt. I can't see that you would add so much that it would matter one way or the other.

You are both right. Most I have ever used is 11 oz. I am just trying to get my grain section in Beersmith 2 dialed in. I am finding that a lot of the default values are incorrect when compared to the malting company specs. My efficiency has been inconsistent lately so I am just double checking everything...
