I was looking for a beer to brew with the white labs platinum strain WLP860 Munich Helles Yeast. Any thoughts on this? Also I plan on brewing 5 gallons of this, should I just cut all of the ingredients in half?

No need to add more yeast. You'll have plenty in suspension despite your best efforts to clear the beer. Add your sugar water to your bottling bucket, rack on top and then bottle.

I would cut everything in half except maybe the melanoiden out of convenience since we are talking about 2oz vs 4oz...not a huge difference. I've used melanoiden up to 5% of total grain bill before and it was fine. I've also used WLP860 when it was first released and it's a fantastic yeast. Mild sulfur smell while fermenting in primary, but that is expected. Flocculates well and left a clear, clean beer.

Joe...looking at the grain bill a little closer i'm surprised you were using pale malt instead of German Pilsen malt which would be closer to style. Also, why the 90 minute boil? Is DMS a possiblilty with pale malt, or is it that all malt has DMS precursers but pilsen/pilsner malt just has a higher percentage? Anyways, just trying to exapand my knowledge and looking forward to brewing your recipe. I was stationed in Bad Aibling, about 90 minutes south of Munich for six years; Augustiner is my absolute favorite Helles. That is right after Hacker-Pschorr, Andechser, Weihenstephaner, Spaten, Paulaneer, Ayinger, oh never mind...I like them all.

Hey Jay-DW,

I used to brew a lot of beers with mostly Pilsner malt but I never did care for the intense graininess I experienced. One day I was brewing a Standard American Lager but only had 4 pounds of Pilsner. I used that grain and finished the bill with 2-row.

That SAL won Best of Show out of 94 beers. I haven't looked back and have not brewed a lager with mostly Pilsner since. Several pounds of Pils gives you a bit of the classic Pils flavor and aroma without the graininess.

No reason for the 90 minute boil other than that's just how I roll. 90 minute mash and 90 minute boil. One reason may be that I like to add my hops after the hot break has been established. That means at least a 75 minute boil so I just go 90. No real need.

Love your "favorite" beer selection.

I'm not being cliche or silly when I say- than you for serving our country. My dad served in the Korean War from '50 to '54. I appreciate your efforts.
