I was thinking of adding dark wheat malt to an American IPA for color, body, and head proteins. I could just use a darker crystal, but I don't like the cloying sweetness or roastyness it would add.

I'm concerned, though, that the wheat will result in astringency.

Has anyone tried this and gotten results you can share?
Primary 1: Hasty IPA
Primary 2:
Secondary: Soured Golden
Kegged: American Wheat
Bottled: Belgian Golden Ale.
Planning: American Amber

Just a suggestion. Check out some of the related threads shown at the bottom of the page.

It seems like there is a new idea floating around regarding making a dark wheat beer.

Is there a commercial brewer doing it?
I drink therefore I am.
