Default Recipe for a Dunkelweizen

My brother is buying a few kits and wants me to help him get a recipe for a dunkelweizen. I am very new to brewing myself and can't make one, so I was wondering if anyone else can help make a fairly simple dunkelweizen 5 gallon extract recipe. He will be ordering it from morebeer if that matters at all.

Thanks again


Patton

here's the recipe from midwest for their extract deep dark wheat:

Deep Dark Wheat: This Dunkel weizen has a dark copper colored body. A great change of pace for wheat beer fans. This recipe is a maltier, darker variation of Hefeweizen Our ingredients for this recipe include: 6 lbs. Wheat liquid malt extract, 3.3 lbs. Dark liquid malt extract, 8 oz. Carapils, 8 oz .Caramel 40°L specialty grains, 2 oz. of hops, yeast, priming sugar and a grain bag.

should give you a place to start at least. deathbrewer has a good recipe on his partial mash sticky (i think).

I used DeathBrewer's partial mash dunkelweizen recipe and it turned out great. It was really easy to do. It's a great thread on how to move from extract to partial mash.

Here it is: Dunkelweizen

When you buy the morebeer hefeweizen extract kit, they tell you what grains you need to add to make it a dunkel.

Kind of resurrecting this thread, I know, but just wanted to say that a couple of months ago I was looking for a nice and simple Dunkelweizen recipe ... ran across this thread and ended up making this exact one (except I used tettnanger instead of hallertauer - no biggie). Just cracked the first one open a few days ago, and it is really f'in great. Really great. One of the best beers I've made in a while.

Just wanted to say thanks ... more and more I'm finding myself preferring simple recipes to complex ones with tons of ingredients. This one's simple, but it gets everything exactly right. So thanks!

Ok, carry on.

I'm sure the 1/4 lb of chocolate in this case is referring to chocolate malt not to actual chocolate.
