hmm, have you checked the baking aisle in a grocery store? they always seem to have and unprocessed form of wheat there for bread

If you still cant find it, I suggest using any type of grain you can find in flaked or berry form ie triticale, spelt, etc, you could even use flaked barley

Edit:

I dug around a little bit, and found this

http://www.foodtown.co.nz/Shop/ProductDetails?Stockcode=272530&name=barnyard-poultry-food-wheat&search=wheat

its listed as chicken food, which doesnt sound appetizing but it seems to be actual wheat berries

I've tracked down a LHBS that has torrified wheat so should be good. Brewed something based on your recipe last night. And by based on, I mean completely different

Will brew your one when my ardennes yeast shows up (getting stuff in NZ is a pain in the ass!)

Dunno why but it seems odd to me there isnt more homebrew presence there, seems that there would be a decent amount of beer culture in NZ being it was settled by the UK

I looked at a couple of the HB stores in Auckland and was expecting a bit more.....

I hope everything goes well and the beer turns out as tasty for you as it did for me!

Cheers

And yeah its hard going here! There is a grand total of two ways to get wyeast here. One shop does a very limited selection (south island). There is a forum here which seems to be mostly run by Epic beer (an NZ craft brew place...which does good work! Their stuff is available in the US in limited quantities). Through the forum they do bulk orders every two months. Waiting for my yeast from said order to do your brew. All round its a giant pain in the ass and costs way more than it should. Oh well. Brew on

I just brewed up another version of this, this one using Amaranth instead of wheat berries, Ill post a pic when the beer is finished

It has a very nice herby nut like flavor that seems to blend really well with the hops, well before its been fermented at least

How's the amaranth version going? I've been curious about brewing with amaranth for a while, if only because no one else seems to be doing it. did you just use a cereal mash? Any cloudiness from the extra proteins and such?

I kegged it a week or two ago and its cold conditioning, flavor from the amaranth seems to be very herbal and earthy and blending really well with the hopping (EKG's)

To the OP: what pressure were you serving this at?

I generally prefer beers with a bit less CO2(~1.6-1.8), but this is a beer I like to have around for bbq's etc so I will crank it up to around 2.2vol and at that carbonation level its quite nice
