I bought an American Wheat beer kit at my LHBS and its basically a huge bag of extract. I have a 1/2 lb of German Munich grain left over from a previous batch & I am thinking about adding it to the recipe.
Any suggestions?
Ha idea?

That would be fine. Only 1/2 lb might not add much, just a little color and maltiness but you might not notice unless you had a side-by-side without it. As munich is a base malt, you'll want to steep it at about 150F for 30min to convert starches to sugars. If you added 1/4 lb of dehusked carafa, you'd end up with a dunkelweizen...
