You do realize that the Munich and Melanoiden should be mashed? This is a style that is hard to brew with extract. If you can get Munich extract it would be better than amber. Dunkels generally don't get late hop additions. I brewed one with only Munich and a touch of Carafa II.

I guess I am not going that way then.

I tried to find the BAVARIAN DUNKEL extract from weyerman but to no avail.

I already have the amber but picking up the grains tomorrow

which direction should i go then?

That amber may be the best way. I looked it up and found out that it's 100% Munich. I've only seen the Munich extract at Austin Homebrew Supply. It's 40% Munich and 60% two-row.

Use Belgian CaraMünich instead. 1lb CaraMünich and 6oz Carafa 1 = MONEY!!!
