It is a bit cleaner-tasting. It's not a bad strain, especially for dry yeast (it blows away WB-06 in my opinion).

I just prefer WLP300.

I'd like to try Danstar Munich. I've had good experiences with other dry yeasts.

That being said, +1 for WLP300. It's a monster! And it sounds like if you ferment at the low end you'll not get too much flavor?

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I love wlp300, but when you don't have a keezer or fridge to ferment really low in, the Munich works well for low tech brewers using swamp coolers.

I just made a dunkel last week using
3.15 lbs munich malt syrup (60 min)
3.15 lbs Wheat malt syrup (15 min)
1oz Tettnang (60 min)
just like the NB recipe but I laso added 8oz of Carapils & 8oz of Carmel 20 steeped for 45min @ 155. but most important to me in a Dunkelweisin is the Yeast. I used Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan same as I use for my Hefemeizen this summer.

So I ended up brewing this one the other day and made the awesome mistake of getting tanked on my pineapple hef and newly kegged fat tire clone (both turned out great btw). I took all of your suggestions with the choc. steep etc. However, in my drunk state a higher abv and honey note sounded good. Good to the tune of 2 pounds with 5 minutes left in the boil. She is fermenting fine, IM sure the yeast just love the simple sugars, but is this going to be a fatal mistake? Or should I be optimistic?

i'm sure you'll be fine, might take it "out of style" if your getting it judged but i'm sure it will taste just fine. I often add 1lb of honey to my beers to up them a bit.

What do you guys think of the northerbrew extract kit(listed above in this thread) versus the morebeer.com kit?
The morebeer.com kit is:
6 lb. Bavarian Wheat DME
8 oz. Caramunich
4 oz. Pale Chocolate
4 oz. Carafa Special II
1 oz. Perle hops

No matter which kit I go with, I'll be sure to use a good liquid yeast like Wyeast 3068.

Thanks,
Andy

I guess maybe that first post made me look like a morebeer.com advertising troll, but I assure you I'm not. I'm a new homebrewer with only a couple brews under my belt and my wife is crazy about Dunkelweisen's.
I guess it really comes down to the Munich LME and Wheat LME versus the Bavarian Wheat DME(with the grains as a bonus). So whatdoyathink?

Thanks,
Andy
