Also, what are you thoughts about using WLP Irish ale ?
I've used this with several reds so far, and they finished out around .012.

THanks.
Karb.
I like honey malt as a substitute and it is pretty common.

The Irish ale yeast is just fine for this beer. Even if it finishes a little dryer, that's okay given the large amount of "extra" malts.

BM, where did you find Munich malt that was 20L? Everything I see is usually around 5-8.

I've got 10 gallons of this fermenting in the basement right now, I don't have my temp control set up really well yet so I've had them in water with t-shirts, according to the stick on thermometers they never got above 68 degrees so should be OK, but I wanted them around 59-62 to really keep the esters down as the malt is supposed to be the flavor dominator here, still think it'll turn out great though!

68 degrees should be fine. I ferment at 70 and narry an ester in sight.

Shooting from the hip, step one should be cutting everything in half (please correct me if my head's up my a**).

For a 5 gal PM batch (full boil), I figure:

Steep:
1 lb. Aromatic/Honey Malt
1 lb. C20
0.5 lb. C40
0.5 lb. Cara-Pils/Dextrine Malt

Mash:
2 lbs. Munich (20 SRM)
2 lbs. Vienna (3.5 SRM)

Boil:
4 lbs. Light DME
1/2 Posted Hop Schedule

I was thinking of giving this a shot within the next few weeks, so please speak up if I'm off base here!

Cheers!

Im by far an expert but..
I would sub. most or all of the LME with DME and I guess the malts are steeped. Also probably don't need the 90min boil since our grain will be steeped beforehand.

Hey BM, I've had my eye on this recipe since last fall, and have been dying to brew it up. I think I'm gonna do it weekend after next, but I'm curious for your thoughts on hops. I've only got a 1/2 ounce of Tettnang, but I've got a couple things that could work... I've got another 1/2 ounce of Willamette, and an ounce of Argentinian Cascade, which says on it that it's similar to Spalt and Tett. I've also got Galena, Cluster, Challenger, Golding, Sorachi Ace, Magnum, Simcoe, Pac Gem, Perle, Chinook, and probably the only one that is helpful, loads and loads of Hersbrucker. (Seriously. I'm drowning in Hersbrucker.)

What do you think about Arg.Casc. for 60, a bit of Hersbrucker for the 45, and my little pittance of Tett for the 30?

Different suggestions?

Perhaps I'm overthinking this, and should just use 20 IBUs of high-AA (I'm thinking Magnum) at 60 and be done with it?

Please, good sir, your feedback.

I actually locked in on your Willamette when I saw it.

I think it would be a great sub if you have enough.
