In a large bowl, whisk together flours, salt and sugar. Add butter and, working quickly, use your hands or a pastry blender to cut butter into flour until pea-size clumps form.
In a small bowl, beat egg and yolk with 3 tablespoons ice water. Slowly pour into flour mixture, then use your hands to incorporate until dough just starts to come together. If dough is dry, add more ice water, 1 to 2 teaspoons at a time, until dough adheres. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Roll out chilled dough to form a rectangle about 12-inches long, 18-inches wide and ⅛ to ¼-inch thick. Cut into strips 12-inches long and 1-inch wide. Take one dough strip and wind it around a cooked bratwurst. Repeat with remaining bratwurst.
In a small bowl, beat egg with water. Make rye salt: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Brush dough around each bratwurst with egg wash, then sprinkle with rye salt.
Place dough-wrapped bratwursts on a baking sheet and cook until pastry is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make malted mustard: In a bowl, whisk ingredients together until smooth. Serve baked bratwursts with mustard.
