Just bumping this thread as I have got some Crystal wheat I want to use.

Can I expect to get similar results as normal crystal but also some of the characteristics that you get with wheat malt.

Who has used this grain? what quantities did you use and what did you think of it

Kabooby :)

It's similar to regular crystal malt but with a bit of a difference. Seems sweeter or more barley sugar like than standard crystal.
I've used it at around 4% in an APA and Oz Sparkling Ale. Makes a nice difference. :)
