What type of wheat is working best for you

We are experimenting with a wheat vodka and still have not decided on what variety of wheat would be best for production. Red, white, soft vs hard. Much to read on them on the internet. Any feedback.

Thanks

]Kent, we use a plain white wheat along with other grains here. coop

Worked with wheat quite a bit. Malted, unmalted, winter, summer, etc.

What are you looking for, Kent? Flavor, yield, etc?

Will you be using exogenous enzymes?

Kent, I don't have any personal experience as I'm not doing it yet, but there is lots of info in the Whiskey production book. I don't feel comfortable putting it here, but if you would like for me to copy a few helpful pages and send a PDF, I'll be happy to do so. Just let me know.

Thanks Folks

We have used white wheat and have been happy with the flavor and yield but as I read it looks like many are using soft red. Just was wondering if I was missing something.........

Thanks

In my experience, red wheat yields a spicier vodka. But that's heavily yeast dependent, obviously.

Happy distilling, Kent.
