Default Weetabix Hefe....muahahaha

So I received a box of Weetabix from my brother as an Xmas gift (don't ask...he's weird like that). Just checked the ingredients & nutrition info.

100% fermentable.


Recipe in the works.

I am really keen to hear about this. After searching and finding this, I was initially upset that there were no replies, but then saw that the topic was created today. I'm using the rectangular, Australian equivalent called "Weetbix". As far as I know, they're more or less identical except for shape.

Do they have enzymes in them or a large percentage of starch that needs converting? I have 700 grams of wheat malt extract I'm prepared to use, and was hoping not to have to go to to the store for enzymes or base barley malt. I will be doing a 4gal batch, and am prepared to boost the OG with honey if need be.

Looking forward to seeing your recipe! I have no idea how to do one...

Yeah, it is the same stuff, Pith. They also sell "Wheat Bricks" in South Africa but they sell it MUCH less expensive than they do in the United States. Anything remotely good for you over here is going to be overpriced...except for homebrew.

I'll be interested in seeing how the beer turns out!

I love Weetabix. Haven't had them in years though. Are you going to do a cereal mash or are you going to treat it like "Flaked" wheat/corn/oats, and just chuck it in a mash tun with some basemalt and let that do the work?

Rev: probably just tossing it in with wheat extract & some Crystal/Caramel. Sucks that I can't figure out how to enter a new ingredient on Beer Alchemy, but it should be beer nonetheless.

So I suppose I have little choice but to add base malt, huh? Damn. Okay. Does the weight of Weetabix correspond pretty equally to the weight of flaked wheat? Or torrified wheat? I'm heading to the LHBS today for some base malt, and need to know how much wheat not to buy. I have 4.5lb of weetbix and want to do a 4gal batch.

Can you get them in the US? I thought it was a UK cereal.

It's around. Health food stores stock it for sure & I've seen it at Safeway grocery stores too.
