Recipe Type: Partial Mash   
Yeast: 1 Pkgs Hefeweizen Ale (White Labs #WLP300) Yeast   
Yeast Starter: yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.084   
Final Gravity: 1.021   
IBU: 75   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60 @ 155   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 30 days   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 30 days   
Tasting Notes: Predominantly malty, the munich definitely comes to the forefront.   

This is my modified Dunkelweizen/Bock recipe, have brewed it 5-6 times now and seems to be one of my craft beer drinking friends favorites. A good bit hoppier than the style should be, but still predominantly malty. Fermented at 70F or so. Good summer beer and an easy alternative if you can't lager your beer, which a traditional dunkel would require.

Drunkelbock:

0.25 lb Chocolate Malt
0.25 lb Special B Malt
0.75 lb Caramunich Malt
2.00 lb Munich Malt - 20L
2.00 lb Caramel Wheat Malt
1.00 lb Barley, Flaked

1.00 lb Brown Sugar, Dark
5.00 lb Wheat Dry Extract

2.00 oz Pearle [8.00 %] (60 min)
2.00 oz Mt. Hood [6.00 %] (60 min)

1 Pkgs Hefeweizen Ale (White Labs #WLP300) Yeast - I always use a starter with anything over 6% and let it go a day or so before pitching.

60 minute mash @155F, 60 minute boil. I bottle carb with 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar. ABV = 7.5% ish, 75ish IBUs. Flavor is heavy on the munich, hint of banana/cloves but nowhere near what a typical hefe would have.



I heart munich malt.

I shall be giving this one a go though, thanks muchly for the recipe, have been looking all over for something like this!

The 1 Lbs of brown sugar is that just for the bottling or does that go into the actual boil. Thanks, Snyder

Into the boil, then another 2/3 of a cup for bottling.

Man this wasn't all that long ago that I posted this and I already feel like this recipe is way over the top now. Funny how our recipe-making seems to change the longer we brew

I'd change the 60min bittering addition to something with slightly higher AA, then do 1oz each of the pearle/mt hood @ 30 minutes. The hoppiness of the original recipe seemed to fade after a few months, and that was what I really enjoyed about this beer.

I'll have to brew this again and re-tool the recipe a bit.

Thanks for the info, and do you bring the brown sugar to a boil with water the same way you do with the dextrose. And I dont have to worry about the hoppiness fading for me, my beers never last that long.

Ya brown sugar should go in last 10-15 minutes of the boil...or atleast thats what I do. And I'd definitely toss atleast an oz of Hallertau or something similar at 15 minutes left in boil...get more of the classic dunkel hop flavor.
