Often used in white beers, lambic, grand cru, etc. Gives a fuller flavour and increases the head. Can be used up to 20-40 % without significant problems. At higher percentages filtering/lautering the grain bed becomes very difficult and extra husks may need to be added to prevent the filter bed from clogging up.
Adding flakes to the mash gives a more drinkable beer and affects the flavour and colour. Because of the production process of our flakes, they may be simply added to the mash. They should not be pre-cooked.
