Did you do a mash-out for this? I'm assuming you did, but thought I'd double check since it's not in the recipe.

Planning to brew it this weekend! Looks like a good one from the reviews

ViaChicago, (Wilco reference?)

I do not do mashouts with my current set up. I batch sparge, and heat the kettle as the wort runs out of the mashtun to stop enzymatic action. A mashout is probably a better method, but I have have good results without doing one.

Best of luck, its been a really nice beer every time I have brewed it.

I use light munich (6-8L) usually Weyermann. I just updated the original post to reflect this.

Great - thanks for the quick response, TimBrewz. Yep, a Wilco reference indeed. I'll give it a shot this weekend with a mashout and see how it goes.

OP, thank you for the great recipe. Brewed on 2/17 and sampled today after a 2 day diacetyl rest. Tastes amazing and hit my numbers spot on. Into the keg for 8 weeks of lagering. Can't wait for May first!

I brewed this per Tim's recipe using BIAB, but I was lazy and didn't want to lager... So, I used WLP029 Kolsch yeast. I fermented it from 62-68 F over 3 weeks in the primary, then transferred it to a secondary and cold crashed it at 36 F for 1 week. I then kegged it and let it condition another 2 weeks.

Initial tasting notes are that it's a pretty balanced Schwarzbier, but not as heavy as some I've tasted. Mine has a pleasant caramel and malt taste with a clean finish. No roasty bite afterwards, and hop neutral. Exactly what I was looking for; a very sessionable early summer brew.

Thanks Tim!

Steve
