Hello thinking of brewing a Dunkel this week and pitch it over my hefeweizen cake in the fermenter. Anyone use any crystal in their dunkels with success?
I was thinking about this for a grain bill
20 gallon batch
60-70% wheat 30 lbs
20% marris otter 10 lbs
Munich 7 lbs
crystal 60L 4 lbs
1 lb chocolate
pitched on wlp 300 hefeweizen yeast
german noble hops, tettnanger, saaz, or perle with a cascade in the hopback.
Also I have used a few lbs of honey in my wheat bears with good success. Anybody out there ever use crystal or honey in their Dunkels??????
Thanks for your input/experience Jason
