Promash specs for unmalted wheat?
Anyone have spec info to add unmalted wheat to Promash? Specifically gravity potential, moisture content, SRM, and any of the other info listed there would be bonus as well.

Thanks!

Nope. Didn't see unmalted wheat on their list anywhere.

I use an SG of 1.035 and an SRM of 2 which seems to work pretty well. I usually run the unmalted wheat a couple times through the mill and adjust the gap tighter each time to get a good crush on those rock hard grains.

I use an extract potential of 1.30. I use a long step mash to really eek out those starches. An acid rest and protien rest is a must.

Re: Promash specs for unmalted wheat?
I've been planning on following a turbid mash schedule, because if I'm going to bother to age this for three years, devote special (plastic) equipment to it, read to it and rock it to sleep at night, a few extra hours on brewday won't hurt. The traditional turbid mash should cover all the rests.

I found something on the internet (a writeup on turbid mashing in fact) where they say they only got about 1.025 out of thier entire mash. I set the extarct efficiency for the unmalted wheat at 1.025 and the SRM for 2, and lowered my usual efficiency a few points to account for this. If I end up with extra wort, it's just more lambic to experiment with, since some will become gueuze, some traditional, and some might get a bit of fruit.

Thanks!

I also lower my extract efficiency in ProMash from 80 to 75 when using a lot of unmalted wheat. I always do step mashes for a really good conversion.
