I found this thread. It might help some.
That's all I got sorry.

Use seems pretty limited. I did get pointed toward this http://brewingwithwheat.com/because-...ker-for-emmer/

I am going to proceed with my wit and I will update this accordingly.

I've been doing some equipment upgrades but plan on brewing this one this weekend.

I finally got to brewing this.

I ended up boiling the emmer separately so the starches would be accessible. When boiled this stuff makes oats look like water. I am fairly certain you could build a wall out of it.

Gravity came out lower than expected though I am not sure whether it was the emmer or the fact that I had to use a different mill. My barley crusher died first thing on brew day.

Beyond that things went smoothly and it is fermenting away at 68 degrees.

Updates to follow.

I tasted it at kegging and it tasted like a wit. I didn't detect anything added by the emmer.

Will update once it goes on tap.
