I brewed this about a month ago. I used 1 oz Black Patent instead of Carafa Special and Wyeast Wheinstephaner for the yeast. It turned out pretty good. A very smooth Dunkel.

I'm just working this up for a 2.5 gallon batch (I ferment in Mr. Beer kegs for space reasons), and am wondering if the Wyeast 3068 will work, and if so, should I use half the pouch? While reading the 3068 notes, it says that too much can cause sulfur and too much attenuation. I don't generally use Wyeast, so I don't have a lot of experience. But I go to Germany a lot, Munich and north of Frankfurt, so I love the Dunkel and Weissen that's all over. I'm trying to get there, and will try this recipe as well as a few others until I find the one I really like. Thoughts?

I think you will be ok using the entire pack. This is still one of the best recipes I have brewed.

I understand that this is a single infusion recipe, but was concerned about the "before additional infusions" part - is that just the standard layout of the Promash report?
Basically, what Im asking is : is it a single infusion of 3.5 gal to the grist to get it to 152 for an hour, and then a mash out to 168? Since I'm using a igloo picnic cooler I would have to add hot water to get the mash out temp - is this OK?
Thanks!

Planning to brew this up this weekend, but would like to darken it a bit, within guidelines. Maybe closer to 20-22 SRM. What would you recommend I change to accomplish that? Use a darker crystal? Crystal 60 maybe? Or would that impact the flavor too much? Any tips would be appreciated! I could probably figure this out at home by playing with Beersmith, but it's in my head now and I'm stuck at work. Help!

[edit: playing around with an SRM calculator online; looks like changing to crystal 60 would have minimal impact. Increasing the Carafa Special (III?) to 0.25 lbs. gets me in the ballpark, but is that going to have a big impact on taste or texture?]

I am putting this into Beersmith now and plan to brew in the next week or so. I have a Danstar Munich dry yeast that I am going to use.

Brewed this on Saturday was a little low on my OG, I forgot to buy some pilsner malt from the good lhbs while I was there so I ran to the other one that sells more pot growing supplies than beer making and there crush really sucks. Didn't notice it till I was long gone oh well, used Pearle hops since I have lbs of them and the wlp300 yeast. Trying to keep my ferm temps down around 62 to avoid to much of the banana flavor. thanks for the recipe.

Question about decoction and this recipe:
OK - this is just what we've been looking for. My friend requested a dunkelweizen and we're gonna brew it up ..
My question is if I wanted to do a simple decoction at the end to raise to mash-out temp,
how much should we pull out to raise to a boil and then stir back into the mash to raise to 168?
Thanks for a great recipe - I'll post how it comes out.
Stewart

Good recipe--did two batches in December & one last weekend--just started on the first keg a couple days ago tastes great-won't last long--used Mt. Hood in the last batch should taste pretty good--if you haven't tried this give it a chance you won't be disappointed
