I am an extract brewer interested in making a wheat beer for my
next batch, so all of the info on wheat extracts has been very
helpful. My question for those of you who have used wheat extracts
is whether or not I will need to use a source of additional enzymes
(such as Edme DMS) with this stuff, or if the extract contains the
necessary enzymes. I understand from Papazian's book that wheat
doesn't naturally have the enzymes to convert the starches and needs
to be mashed with malted barley (or some other enzyme source) when
doing all-grain. Are these extracts 100% malted wheat, or a combination
of wheat and barley?

Please indicate which brand of wheat extract you used.
