Torrified wheat vs malted wheat..what's the difference?
 
So I have two recipies for an ale I've wanted to brew ever since I started brewing: Double Dragon.

One recipe was in a recent Brew mag, which calls for malted wheat, another was one I found online, which calls for torrified wheat.

What's the difference between the two? I ask because my LHBS carries malted wheat but not torrified, which I would have to order online.

Thanks! :mug:

Responding as your header reads, your actual post says malted twice:)
They are very similar profiles, to me the torrified has less malt character and more head retention characteristics. Malted wheat as being it is malted seems to add a little more color and malt flavor.
Hope this helps.
Others will probably jump in with more detail on the differences:)

Thanks OldManBrew, my mistake! lol

Doesn't malted wheat add head retention as well?

Yes it does. Adds body as well.
