I think the brand was Briess. Wheat DME with 65% wheat and 35% regular malt extract. It's listed separate from the grains because its an extract addition, thus you'll be doing a partial mash. Good questions! And good luck on the brew

Thank you for the quick response! Ordering supplies today, my basement is averaging 62-66 degrees F so its good for fermentation.

What do you think about using the leftover wheat dme for priming? could it use more body or will it be like drinking a beer smoothie

I've read on here that you can use DME for priming, but I've never tried it. It probably wont make too much of a difference

I brewed this recipe on Sunday and as of this morning(Tuesday) the double air lock isn't bubbling put shows signs of pressure because the water levels are about a half inch apart. Is my wort under aerated?

Don't trust the airlock...are you using a carboy or a bucket? If its a bucket, quickly open the lid and check to see if you have foam, krausen or bubbles. If you see that, it's fermenting fine. Sometimes wlp 400 can produce thick krausen which doesn't allow the CO2 to escape.
