I get wheat from a friend. I have used it with great results. It does not need to be malted. You just need to make sure you use enough malted grains with enough enzymes to convert the unmalted grains.
I'm on my phone so I can't find some of the links that talk about how to figure if you have enough malted grains to convert unmalted grains.
Will try to post that when I'm on the computer.
Belgian wits usually use unmalted wheat.
I have tried to malt the wheat and did not have good results.
The wheat I get is pretty clean but I still need to sift through it to pick out weed seeds, small rocks and the occasional grass hopper parts.
After about 6 months I had to throw out the wheat as it got too buggy.
The higher protein wheat will just make the beer more cloudy, but the low protein wheat wi also produce a cloudy beer.
