Default ARG - Did I use Wheat Malt Extract??

I'm going nuts here. I'm SURE I used regular Pale Malt Extract but for some reason, in the back of my head I remember LOOKING at Wheat Malt Extract the last time I was at the LHBS.

So now I'm wondering if I purchased 3.3lb of Wheat and THEN without thinking used it as normal LME.

So my question is . . . . what color is Wheat LME. If it is a very pale color I think I'm OK.

I wonder what a Scottish 80 will taste like with 3.3lb of wheat LME LOL.

I don't think I'd be able to tell just by looking at it. It'll just be a surprise!

I have to believe that since I thought of it I did not do it. It's like when you leave home and THINK you left the iron on or water running or something. If you think of it you probably did not do it.

I THINK I remember looking at the plastic can and making sure. I've never used Wheat LME so who knows! SURPRISE LOL

Wheat LME looks about like Pale LME.

The differences in your Scottish ale should be minor. Probably will have better head retention due to the extra protein and may take longer to clear. The main difference with hefes is the yeast not the grain.

That must have been some kind of hell.

If it blows out the airlock like a geyser it is wheat malt. :-)
