Excellent tutorial BW Redneck, thanks a lot.

I have 1 question, maybe you want to add the answer in the section on toasting the oak, how long do you toast the wood in the oven to get full carmelization?

Thanks again,

Swede

Thank you for taking the time to post this. I am very much interested in how you malt your wheat. Wheat is readily available around here and I would like to make wheat whiskey and vodka based on wheat allgrain.

I'm on the same path, and found this:

How to build a tabletop malt house, sequence of pictures:
http://www.nogy.net/malthouse/

and the PDF of her report on malting and malthouses:
http://www.nogy.net/malthouse/malthouse.pdf

I'm sprouting a pound of wheat with this information right now. Per the OP 2 to 2 1/2 LBs are needed per gallon, so I'll be running 5 LBS of wheat 1 at a time, then mixing it 50:50 with unmalted wheat for a 5 gallon batch.

What great info! Thanks for posting it. A table top malthouse sounds like a fun weekend project.

This is great to learn some about wheat. Till now I've been using it for wheat vodka hoping for wheat gin. But my yield was so poor and now I can try again so thank you Red.

Once I get a good wheat whiskey, then start playing with a few adjuncts such as oats or rye, how do you manage the higher levels of proteins in all these soft grains? Wheat has far more proteins than I get from barley.

In my first wheat mash I was getting a lot of viscous glue which persists thru the fermentation, lasted 8 days, but still the glue and I still get a sugar reading. Do you think this might be proteins, reading like sugar? FG with a Brix meter shows 10° sugars (I started with 15°)
I didn't know to boil wheat. Would boiling fix this for me? Followed by rapid cooling to precipitate them out....

Can anyone tell me if ferments should be stopped after the primary, or left as I did till the end for a few weeks. I know it creates more esters but there are folks on here trying hard to infect their backset adding as many extra esters as they can.... And here's me aiming for a clean dry beer free of congeners. I had thought all good mash should have a primary crust, and should then be racked and stripped when the crust falls.

Good write-up BW. I have a distilling to-do list and now wheat is on there as well.
