Default Franziskaner Dunkel Recipe

Hope someone can help me... My favorite beer has to be a Franziskaner Dunkel. I was hoping someone out there had a great extract recipe they would be willing to share with me.

Here's one, but it's not a dunkel. I would substitute some of the wheat with a 1/4 lb of some darker malt.

Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse (from Beer Captured)

4 oz Belgian Aromatic Malt
2 oz Acid Malt

6 lb. 5 oz. Muntons Wheat Dry Malt Extract
2¼ oz. Malto Dextrin

1 oz. American Hallertauer @ 3.5% (bittering hop)

¼ oz. Spalt (flavor hop)
¼ oz. Perle (flavor hop)

White Labs #WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast

1½ cup Muntons Wheat Dry Malt Extract

OG: 1.052


1) Heat 1/2 gallon water to 155, then add the grains. Steep for 30 minutes.
2) Sparge with 1 gallon 150 degree water, then bring wort to boil
3) Add extract & malto-dextrin, top off to 2 1/2 gallons, bring to boil
4) Add Hallertauer...boil 45 minutes
5) Add Spalt & Perle...boil additional 15 mins
6) Cool and top off to 5.5 gallons
7) Pitch yeast

This might be considered a silly question, but I'll ask anyway.

Does a hefe need to go to a secondary? Since the point is to have it full of yeast, should I got from primary to bottle or will a secondary still help improve flavor?

There's yeast and then there's yeast. I always secondary my Hefe's and there's still plenty of yeast left.

There's yeast all right. This morning when I checked, I found Foamzilla had taken over Level 2 on the Tower of Fermentation. Blew the orange carb cap right off. After wiping down the carboy and putting the cap back on, I tried to attach my hose to the second hole in the carboy cap. It blew the hose off three times before I finally secured it on. I've probably lost a pint so far and I'll probably come home to find 2-3 more pints spilled out.
