Anything else laying around the house? The Munich malt doesn't need to be mashed so steeping will work just fine. You will make beer. What's your estimated OG?

When I used to BIAB, I never once used any extract other than light. You have so much more control over your beer if you steep your dark grains.

That being said, this is your beer. If you want...

Yeah I misunderstood your question. My suggestion would create bottle bombs. Why don't you want to wait until fermentation is complete before you bottle? Also what's your estimated abv?

I've heard it should be within 1 or 2 degrees of the temperature inside the fermenter. But someone may tell you otherwise.

You got it. Cover it with a towel or stick it somewhere that's always dark. The light will make it "skunky."

Add dry American ale yeast when you prime/bottle. Or another yeast that won't affect the flavor.

I also agree with jayhem that it will be a bit on the dark side for an Amber ale. That's how mine turned out, but I was trying to get that "bready" flavor he mentioned into an amber

I'd give the MO a try. In my opinion, it would give a little more complexity than 2 row, but that's just my opinion. This recipe actually looks similar to one I made this summer that turned out...

Fermentation filled airlock-contaminated?

So I've been brewing for about 4 years now, and I've never had a need for a blowoff tube. I ferment in the 5 gallon ale pail buckets (you know, the ones with markings for up to 5 gallons and then...

That sounds risky. Isn't the point of boiling your starter to insure there aren't any wild yeast in your DME. I suppose if you know it's absolutely sterile you're fine, but it doesn't sound worth...

it will take a while before you notice anything with a lager. Even for an ale 24 hours could be early for much activity out of the airlock. Since the colder temps slow down yeast activity it's...

Since you're dealing with stout level gravities, I would transfer to a secondary for at least another 2 weeks. Then bottle. That's just my opinion though, I'm sure you'll get plenty more
