Next time you draw a beer I'd like to see a picture of that beer (if possible).

I believe this is 4th or 5th generation of this beer... I dunno, drank so much of It can't remember. Would hazard to say I've made 30-40 gallons of this beer. Crowd favorite, more importantly; my favorite.

You should also be very proud of yourself as this is a very difficult beer in a complex style. GREAT JOB!
I have 10 gallons slowly clearing in a couple kegs. When they are ready I'll snap off a picture of a liter and post it here.
I can't wait to see your Munich Helles photo. We will "virtually" toast a fine German Lager.

PROST!!!!
Thanks! Here are two photos of my brew. It is still pretty cloudy so I am cold crashing a bunch of the bottles now. However, it still tastes and looks great. The head is absolutely astounding, like whipped cream with "soft peaks" when you stick in your finger and pull it out. I think the lacing and stability are pretty clear from the second shot. One happy homebrewer!

Sadly, my lhbs did not have any melanodian malt, and I didn't do a decotion mash. But, I did end up with a mash efficiency of 76% up from 66% last week!

So, I ended up with 53 liters of worth with a og of 1.052 that I am letting primary in a 20 gallon vat inside my chest freezer at 54f.
(Apt stove set up)

When, I come back from vacation, I want to rack into 2, 6 gallon carboys so I end up with an honest 12 gallons of beer at bottling time.

Its a bit darker than what I wanted, but it should clear out I hope. I will post a pic of the hydrometer sample asap.
