I'll do that one when you're here (perfect time for my first decoction, with an expert on the premises!). I'm not sure how to interpret the numbers in his mash schedule.

bird, start with this link...I think it does a pretty good job of putting everything in practical terms:

Thanks for posting this recipe! Inspired, I brewed an extract version today (30 min grain steep, 60 min wort boil):

0.5 # Caraplis
0.5# Munich Malt
4# Alexanders Wheat LME
2# Muntons Wheat DME
1 oz Hallertau (60 min) (1.6%)
0.5 oz Hallertau (10 min) (1.6%)
1 ts Irish Moss (20 min)
Wyeast 3068

OG: 1.058

My LHBS said the grains would make it more of a dunkel. I dunno the styles well enough to be that precise...I just hope it turns out tastey!

Looks like a good recipe...I'd guess it'll turn out more of a ruddy Hefe than a Dunkel, but it depends on the L of your Munich. Hefeweizens lend themselves to extract brewing at least as well as any other style, if not the better. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Why no carahells, crystal 10l or munich malt? 50/50 seems like a popular recipe, but the more I read about the bavarian brewers, the more I see than theyre using a small amount of crystal malt or roasted malt. I think it adds some sweetness and color to help balance the clove flavors.
