Roasting wheat malt

Fri Oct 20, 2006 7:54 am

I plan to roast a 1/4 lb of wheat malt for a dunkelweizen I will brew this weekend. Promash gives roasted wheat an average of 650 degress lovibond. That's damn near burnt. Anyone have any experience in roasting wheat malt?

I don't, but maybe a coffee roaster would work... ?

Disable the smoke detectors and warn the neighbors it is not a real fire?
Have plenty of Homebrew on ice when the Authoritys come?

Do it outside on the bar-b-que ;)

I have done up to 300 lovibond 425 degrees for about 40-60 min. 600 gonna be a challange good luck. Don't forget to let the grain age a couple weeks after roasting or you will get some harsh flavors.
