The base should be all pilsner malt, with a little bit of wheat and/or munich/vienna (1lb, 10% at most) thrown in.

Hop it to 20-30 IBUs with noble hops.

Pretty versatile style to work with :)

if you're looking for a lot of color contribution without much flavor added, you could go for Briess Blackprinz malt. A little goes a long way. Or you could go the classic Black IPA route and go...

So many folks get by with just putting their probe onto the side of the carboy but I swear by getting the probe into the beer itself. Thermowells are relatively cheap when you...

Matt Brynildson would disagree. A 30 minute hop addition can add a "hop sweetness" that you don't get from a late/dry hop addition.

If you can get enough IBUs from late additions there's really...
