Does anyone have a link or comments on style guidelines for this. Traditional Ingredients and what not?
There is a Jamil show episode on Schwarzbier:
I brewed his recipe and just made substitutions on the hops and yeast. It's in primary right now and I think it will turn out great from the one sample I've had.
I did a schwarzbier a couple of months ago. I did an extract with grains recipe based on Jamil's book. You can substitute base grain for the extract of course. I've been pretty good about letting it lager for 3 months. From specific gravity samples, I've noticed that the chocolate malt goes a long way, but otherwise it is a fairly clean finishing beer. I'm really looking forward to drinking this one in May.
6oz. chocolate malt
6oz. crystal 40 L
3.5oz. carafa II
3.5oz. black roasted barley
5# munich LME

.5oz 3.1%AA Hallertau @20min
.5oz 3.1%AA Hallertau @0min

I think Im going to go this route. Now I just have to find some Hallertaur.

I love Shiner's Black Lager and have wanted to try to copy it for a while. I am splitting the difference between uwjester and riclark and working up a mini-mash. I am still figuring out beersmith, and trying to find styrian hops. Shiner uses Styrian and Saaz.
Good idea. I think the styrians would go good with this beer, but yeah, they are hard to come by these days. I've been wanting to do a pilsner with styraian goldings, but I just haven't come across the hops for it.
Here is what I have worked up so far. I might not use so much chocolate, and I need another bittering hop. Any suggestions? Maybe perle for bittering and saaz just for aroma? I have yet to figure out how to set up my mash on beersmith.

I would think of cutting the black barley a bit, depending on what you are shooting for. My interperetation of the style is that you don't want to create a stout-like flavor. I think you are shooting for a fairly clean lager. Too much black barley could add a coffee-like acrid flavor. Of course, I've done this style all of once, so take any advice I give with a pile of salt.
