Are you new?

Dunkelweizen = dark heffeweizen

Weizenbock = strong weizen - always dark (I think), but much stronger than a Dunkel

I know. Sorry to crap in your thread.

I'm doing a Weizenbock, trying to get close to Schneider's "wheat dopplebock" Aventinus.

i made a kit hefeweizen a few weeks ago, the LME was kind of old so I think it was a bit darker than normal, so my beer is much darker than you would expect a hefeweizen to be.

I am going to call it a dunkelweizen and nobody will ever know the difference. HA HA

You'll get more Hefeweizen-y phenolic goodness if you include an acid rest ~99F

I have a pretty good Dunkelweizen on tap right now; I used

50% German wheat
30% Munich
20% Belgian CaraMunich

Hallertau hops at 60 and a pinch at 15. WLP300 Weizen yeast. It seems to be right, stylewise, and is pretty yummy.

I just did what was intended to be a dunkel weizen but I was shipped way more crushed wheat than I asked for, so it turned into a weizenbock.. simply because it was going to about 6.5 or 7% abv.

I used German cara aroma to darken it up. 1/2 pound and its a beautiful color now, a murky reddish/brown, but not too dark. Oh, and it tastes AMAZING.

This is in the books:

5.5# each Wheat and Munich
15IBUs from Hallertau @ 60

I actually did do the Weihenstephan decoction, proper, (sorry Dude, it's the easiest way to get all those steps in there.)

I'll post the recipe proper soon.

I cracked the first tester of mine on the weekend (basically identical to yours but 13 IBU). It was really good but didn't have QUITE as much maltiness as I was hoping for. Would the decoction give that to me? I've been thinking of trying a decoction so I can do a protein rest without having to add more water but I also read that it can increase the malt flavour.

Well in that case I don't care if it helps or not!
