Can plain Puffed Wheat Cereal(eg Sanitarium),and not the honey variety, be used as a straight substitute for Torrified/Flaked Wheat?

I searched the archives and Dicko discussed Puffed Wheat as a substitute, in the context of a possbile contributor to increasing SG points. However interested to know if any real difference, as I intend brewing with puffed wheat first thing 2morow morning.

Alternatively is there another acceptable 1:1 substitute for Torrified Wheat?

cheers
Roach

I've used them in an English Ale this year roach.

No problems at all. IIRC they were about 3% of the grist.

Hi Roach,
The first brew I used puffed wheat produced an unpredictable starting gravity that I have not got to the bottom of as yet, but I bought it in a supermarket in Whyalla and have not seen that brand since.
I feel that it contained some kind of sugar, hence the higher SG and the subsequent headache with each session on that beer.
I have since used torrified wheat that I got from JM and it has given the beers that I have used it in, a pleasant "lift".
After my first experience with puffed wheat from a supermarket I will not be using that product of unknown value again.
Maybe it was a derivative of "Honey Smacks" :lol:
3 or 4 % of torrified wheat would be suitable in most grists and it gives "excellent head" :D
Cheers, Merry Xmas and good luck with your brew.
