i have a heffe recipe which calls for 6.6 lbs of wheat LME (55% wheat malt and 45% barley malt) i can only find 65%/35% in LME. I was thnking about switching to DME where i can find the 55%/45% but i was wondering what is the difference between the two (65/35 vs. 55/45) regarding flavor profiles or other characteristics in the brew? and will it make much difference if i go with one over the other?

thanks for the info, thats kinda what i figured, since i'm making a clone i think i'll stay true to the recipe, or i'll make 2 batches one with 65/35 and one with the 55/45 and see if i can tell a big difference
wheat has a "spicy" taste. if you like spicy use more wheat, if your not such a big fan of "spicy" use less wheat. i'm just starting out, so i cant really answer your question but i have an american wheat ale in bottles right now. i used wheat DME at 65% wheat 35% barley.
