All-Munich is okay, right?
I'm planning on doing a 3 gallon brew tomorrow using 6 lbs of Munich and no other malts. The literature all says Munich will convert itself, but with a quick search I didn't see any all-Munich recipes. So I figured I'd double check. Is what I'm planning doable? Are there any other caveats re Munich?

3 gallons
6 lbs Munich
1/2 oz hallertauer (60)
1 oz hallertauer (30)
1 oz saphir (3)
1 oz saphir (0)
Chico yeast

If I recall correctly, I believe DeathBrewer did a SMASH with Munich.

I cant find theexact thread but here is one:

There is enough diastatic power in Munich Malt to convert itself. You can check the specks on the malt. Look at who made it and you can go online and check it or ask your hbs for the diastatic power of the malt. I believe that you need greater than 30 Lintner.

Altbeir is what you are looking for.

I used 4oz of chocolate malt, and some carapils I wanted to get rid of. 25 IBUs with hallertauer and tettnang, 1054 OG mashed at 150F with wy2565 (kolsch)

What I have is Weyermann dark Munich, 8L. Weyermann's website doesn't give a Lintner rating, but says "use up to 100%," so it looks like I'm cool. I'm planning on a 150F mash.

Sometimes I've got less conversion using muich as a base. It might be good to mash for 90 minutes, especially with dark munich.

All Munich should be fine...especially without any other caramel malts.

I have a Munich/Northern Brewer SMaSH with WLP001 that is not only educational, but delicious. You could say it lacks complexity, but of course it does, after all it has 4 ingredients. Not Reinheitsgobot 4, but FOUR.

I've done a SMaSH with Munich malt and Summit hops before. I wasn't a huge fan of the hop, but the malt profile was very nice.
