Dunkelweizen
 
Searched around a it and can't seem to find one around here.

Does anyone have a traditional Dunkelweizen recipe?

I'm thinking:

50/50 Vienna malt, wheat malt mixture to about 1.054og mash at 152
with about 14 IBUs of hallertau, without any aroma/flavor editions

3068 for yeast.

Any thoughts? Do I need to add chocolate malt for color?

would this make it a non traditional recipe?

Weyermann Chocolate Wheat

413° L. Malted wheat that has been steeped and roasted to create a very dark color. Adds deep color and roasted character. Use 1 to 5% for altbier, dunkelweizen, stout and porter.

Weyermann Caramel Wheat

45.5° L. Malted wheat that has been steeped and kilned to create a caramel malt. Emphasizes wheat aroma and flavor and adds color; use up to 15% for dunkelweizen and hefeweizen.

If you're worried about color, what about using like a Carafa III? Get some color without the roastiness of chocolate malt.

Hmmm, I bet it probably would.

Thanks for the link sloop, I hate sifting through 50 crappy recipes though. "1oz. Hallertauer, 5 min" gimme a break.

I've got one sitting in primary now that tastes amazing. It's pretty close to BJCP I think (though I don't have much experience matching styles).

Batch: 23L
3KG Wheat
2.5KG Munich
0.23KG Chocolate
14IBU Hallertauer (60 minutes, no flavour or aroma)
Wyeast 3068

Mashed at 153F for 60M

I have thought of that, 'bird, but I'd have to order it, and I want to brew this in the next few days.

bradsul, that looks like an awesome recipe!

IIRC

for a Dunkel instead of a Hefe, replace the Pilsner with Vienna or Munich and darken it up a bit with chocolate.


weizenbocks kick my ass, but I can drink Dunkels all day
