Edit:
Sounds like you had a great brewday. That mash schedule is very similar to the one I used on my Munich/Tett Lager. Biggest difference is that I did a 20 minute rest at 104 and infused up to 140. Same two decoctions after that.

Finally found the right time to do a side by side with your Munich/Tett. Your bottle had a couple of months of additional conditioning since DeathBrewer’s review and this did make a difference. It poured with fluffy head that dissipated in a few minutes, leaving a thin layer. Carbonation level was fine. There was no fruity or hop aroma, just a bit of the roasty Munich coming through along with some malt. Flavor was toasty and dry with a nice level of bittering. Overall a delicious treat. It’s sad to know that this is the last from the batch.

As for any comparison, the Munich character comes through on both, but in a different way. These are two totally different beers and it’s amazing to know that we started with the same ingredients. I’ll leave a review of mine to someone less bias, but will say that it is a much softer version and lacks the dry finish. I hope I get a chance to bottle some before the weekend. We have a crowd coming over for Easter and I’d hate to see it kick without having saved some.

Here's a picture of the two. Background lighting comes through better on yours, but the color difference is still noticeable.

That's great!

The Vienna Lager will be the first beer I brew once my shelves and cabinets get built in the brewery. Until then, I can't move the chest freezer and cannot lager.

I was thinking 80% Vienna, 20% Munich with Tettnanger and one other hop...maybe hallertau...or I just got some palisade I want to try. Definitely going to do some FWH in this one.

Instead of a SMaSH, it could be a 2Ma2H

Wow, great photo! Mine looks like a BMC next to yours, though. It's hard to believe there was adequate carbonation -- I'm guessing there was a little bit of fermentation going on in that bottle.

Wow, you bet it's different! I'm only halfway through the beer, but I have to say, this is what Munich ought to be!

app: Dark brown, off-white lasting head, some haze, deep copper highlights
aro: Thick with big toffee, fennel, and pumpernickel. Hints of cookie spices.
flv: Malty with black licorice and caramel
plt: Exceptional. Sweet is punctuated with spicy bitterness and tingling carbonation. Finishes very clean and wanting more!
ova: This beer starts out exactly like Mönchshof Schwarz (which, according to Jamil, is much more like a Dunkel with its big bready malt) and when it warms, kind of has notes of English winter warmers (Wychwood Bah Humbug comes to mind) but only in the nose and flavor. Palate has that tell-tale lager void and finish is always surprisingly dry.

Now I'm 3/4ths through it. I will save the other one to put next to my own 1.056 Mu/Tett/838 once it's mature (I actually have one poured right here, but it's clearly green).

I think the Vienna in my recipes is a tett smash. I can;t remember, I might have used NB for bittering but drop that and use enough tett for the IBU's. Anyway, that was a great beer.

I'd check but for some reaosn HBT is not letting me access my recipe drop down.

Nice touch with the Bar Harbor Brewing glass- appreciated by a Mainer! Sorry to drag up an old, but very interesting, thread!
