You can't. You have to buy Munich Malt unless you are going to start from the raw barely.

Does Munich maybe have something to do with how long they let the endosperm grow in malting, and whether they kiln it wet or dry? I also don't know if it's a 2-row or a 6-row.

It's not roasted. It has the same or lower SRM than pilsner and wheat have.
I am thinking about making a dunkelweisen from my favorite Hefe recipe and had the same question.
But making it? I don't know that answer. I have to buy it - if theres a difference.

That is most certainly not true. Weyermann Light Munich is 6 L, Weyermann Pilsners are generally less than 2 L.

Munich malt is made using a special process, it is more intensively kilned than other base malts which results in a darker beer.

Briess makes a 6-row munich malt which they say tastes exactly the same as 2-row, but I've never used it. I don't think many european brewers use 6 row malt.

SRM and lovibond aren't the same thing. there was just a debate on here recently about it. i still don't know if he was right, just sayin.

True, but malt colors are usually measured in degrees lovibond and final beer color is SRM which means standard reference method (I think).
