I found some "rolled wheat" at Wegman's today. Same thing as flaked wheat? Also, can i just throw it in the mash or do I need to boil it first?

I made this beer back in October; it was my first AG batch. I remember it being tasty. Last night I finally tried a Leffe Blonde (well 3 of then actually) and it was tasty. Does anyone know if these two are similar in taste?

Leffe will be quite a bit different. Leffe is extremely clear and I doubt would have any wheat in the grain bill. The slayer grain bill is more like that of a wit. Here's a Leffe clone recently posted by Revvy, which I am hoping to brew within the next two weeks.

Just brewed a slight variation of this. I basically upped the grain bill a little to hit 7% abv. I also subbed flaked oats for the flaked wheat, hoping to get some silkiness to the mouthfeel.

Question for BM: How did you get your beer to be so clear? I used whirlfloc in the boil and proportionally I didn't up any of the wheat or oat %s, but I'm afraid that I'm going to get a cloudier beer than I'm aiming for. Any tricks up your sleeve? Gelatin?

To everyone else, are you seeing a hazy beer as your results or do your brews look like what BM posted?

Thanks!
