Still inching my way from partial to all-grain mashing...

So, what about protein rests? Should I always do it with any of the base malts? Or, certain ones especially, like when using wheat malts?

with raw wheat you will need to do a cereal mash which is a total pain in the ass in my opinion. use flaked wheat which has been gelatinized during the rolling process and is ready to go for a single infusion mash. Rice hulls will be needed!!! That shit is like paste without it. Pre soak the rice hulls as well. you would be surprised how much water they absorb.

Glad to see you on here bro!

So what about wheat malt?

I've done a number of wheat beers, and have always used wheat malt. I have never bothered with a protein rest, short of dumping in a gallon of hot water to raise the temperature of the tun before doughing in.

So is wheat malt mash ready? or should I be ramping the mash schedule for protein rests?

So far, I've had no problems, save one slow sparge with 50% wheat in the grain bill.

I was only talking about raw wheat. Wheat malt is fine for a single infusion. I still recomend rice hulls though.
