Wheat malt grist pictures
 
I am looking for some wheat malt grist (after milling) pictures. I would like to adjust my corona mill in order to get a wheat grist adequate for a hefe. in this sense, a picture of wheat malt milled will be very useful for comparison.
I try to find some pictures of wheat malt grist in HBT and google without success.
Any help is welcome!

Man, you're a day late!

I brewed a weizenbock yesterday with 50% wheat.

Milling wheat sux! The stuff is hard!

Also I took almost a 10% efficiency hit with wheat making up over 50% of my grain bill.

I now have either a "light" weizenbock, or a "heavy" dunkel?

Both sounds delicious.....:)

Bad that I asked too late. But I hope that other brewers take a picture of their wheat grist and post here. As I never made a hefe, a good shot of grist will be helpful.

That's what she said. Bada bing

My Milled wheat looks mostly like flour with 30% chunks in it. Sorry no pic. Maybe you can post a pic of yours for criticisum.

Have you observed a drop in your brewhouse efficiency when you use wheat malt milled as you described?

Didn't you say it jammed up on you? What mill you using?

I'm using a JSP Maltmill, powered by my trusty old Dewalt drill.

Great workhorse!

It handled the wheat OK if I started the mill, THEN added the wheat, a bit at a time.

With the hopper full of wheat, it just bound up. This is more a factor of my drill than the mill, IMHO.

First time I ever jammed up the mill.
