20220815 Malted sandwich bread with CLAS

 

 

Please see here and here to learn more about concentrated lactic acid sourdough (CLAS).

 

 

 

This bread is very easy to make once you get all the ingredients.

 

 

 

 

 

Making malted wheat flakes

 

 

 

We can flake it using Trailrunner's method 

 

 

 

or 

 

 

using  a pasta maker

 

 

Either start with non-diastatic wheat malt, such as this one:

 

https://www.brewingwithbriess.com/wp-content/uploads/documents/Briess-PISB-Caracrystal-Wheat-Malt.pdf

 

 

 

or 

 

 

Moisten diastatic wheat malt with water not more than twice its weight, steam it under pressure in an Instant Pot for 30 minutes to soften and convert it to non-diastatic malt, and flake it with a pasta maker. Using this method, 55g of wheat malt yields ~ 89g of flakes.

And a very attractive loaf, as a result.  Nicely played, yippee.  How does it taste?  Do the malted wheat flakes make a noticeable contribution to either the flavor or the texture?

I'll second Paul's praise and his question. Does it have a malty flavor?

Did you use the Weyermann dark wheat malt, the Briess Caracrystal wheat malt, or a pale wheat malt for this bread?

A very inviting loaf!

Would this be 28C instead?

when i initially posted asking about malted bread, I did not expect to start such a conversation and certainly didn't expect this outcome! I can't wait to try it out, thanks!

and you can bake with complete control and freedom. 

Please adjust the formula to your taste, as I have never tried malted sandwich bread.
