So how about unmalted farrow instead of unmalted wheat? I have some on hand, it's light in color, and it could be an interesting experiment.

I could just make a cereal of it then add it to the mash. I always make a cereal of oatmeal before mashing it, so this would be not much different.

This is good information

I was scrubbing the Hoegaarden clone threads because I have been trying to figure out if the recipe I used had any grains with enzymes... I'm a little slow and know only that barley, 2 row, and 6 row have enzymes. I stumbled upon this again having not retained this information during my first read several weeks ago. So I feel great knowing that this is why the unmalted wheat is such an important ingredient.


Here was my recipe, I also mashed 1.5 lbs of rolled oats for fun.

The result is quite good. Not quite Hoegaarden though. The wit yeast flavor in my clone is much more pronounced. The clone needs more foamy head too. All in all, I would make this again. The color is spot on!!
