Recipe Type: All Grain Yeast: Rogue Pacman Yeast Starter: 1 liter Batch Size (Gallons): 6.5 Original Gravity: 1.048 Final Gravity: 1.009 IBU: 32.8 Boiling Time (Minutes): 120 Color: 14.8 SRM Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days at 60 Tasting Notes: Smooooth
Inspired by Munich Dunkel and Rogue Dead Guy Ale. I figured if pacman yeast can make a world class Maibock why not try a munich dunkel.
This beer is a super crowd pleaser. It is light and dry, but the munich gives the impression/taste of huge maltiness/bread. Argentine Cascade gives light floral/citrus aroma and basically no flavor..just smooth bittering. If I might say, it reminds me of heineken dark.
I grossly underpitched this beer with a small starter cultutred from a rogue bottle, I only added the brown sugar to ramp up fermentation.......looking back it may not be necassary but sure makes for a nice light bodied beer. I boiled the brown sugar in water and cooled before adding to fermenter.
