Dunkelweizen
 
This recipe is basically Jamil's recipe from Brewing Classic Styles, scaled down to 5.5 gallons instead of 6 with a higher efficiency for my system, and using a slightly different yeast that I use for my regular Hefeweizen. Tasting at kegging is absolutely fantastic. Malty, with some rich character from the Munich, Crystal and Special B, Just balanced with bitterness and easy drinking. Clean, but with the classic Hefeweizen esters. Another great recipe from the book.

edit: wow, I was dumb

I'm curious as well. Any pics/taste evaluations?

It turned out great. I scored a 38/37 at the Los Angeles County Fair with it. The WLP 300 yeast would probably be a better choice as far as yeast. Everybody keeps missing the banana, which the 351 does not produce much of. The recipe is great. Malty, rich, and still has the hefeweizen fruityness and phenolics. Give it a try.

just brewed this up yesterday. . .I did a 10 gallon batch and am fermenting 5 gallons with Wyeast 3068 and 5 gallons with Wyeast 3333. I will try to remember to post again in about 6 weeks (after fermentation and bottle conditioning) to update how they turned out. The gravity sample tasted great and I am looking forward to the finished product, thanks for the recipe BrewSmith!!

well, I guess I forgot to post when I was going to, but was just looking through old posts and realized I never responded. All I can say is that both batches (wyeast 3333 & 3068) turned out great!! I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone that enjoys a good dunkel!! Just finished up my last bottle about a couple of weeks ago (approximately 4 months after brewing) and I think this brew just kept getting better and better during the 4 months or so that it lasted. Great recipe Brewsmith. . .thanks for sharing!!

Has anyone brewed this using Wyeast 3638?

Was looking to brew this but can't find the carafa special. Does anyone know what a substitute for the Carafa Special would be? Does Northern Brewer have a known substitue? I was going to stop by there after work. This is what I have found on their site: (notice no "special")

I guess my question is, since they are dehusked does that mean it is a SPECIAL version with less bittering?

What you found is the Carafa Special. It is the dehusked version. The regular Carafa has a husk and is basically like Chocolate malt.

Edit - I recently rebrewed this beer using WLP-300 and it came out absolutely fantastic. I fermented cool, around 64 F. The esters and phenols are there, without being overpowering. Malty, with some Munich character, but still light and refreshing.
