I saw your thread the other day but for some reason I was thinking I was wanting something different than a dunkel. I guess ultimately, I was wanting to use a wheat I've already had success with. I've never done a dunkel and am not sure this is one I would want to try out for the first time, no time to recover if it all goes bad. Hence, my search for something with a lot of feed back.
I'm not opposed to creating something from scratch, with or without help. In fact, I think I would really like that. However, while wheats are one of my favorite styles, I have not experience with dunkel.
Do you think some of those previously mentioned spices would mesh well with a wheat based beer? I haven't found much and I'm trying to figure out why that is. Is it not a good pairing or is it something no one has interest in? A lot of the holiday beers I've found require a long conditioning time, which I was looking to avoid, and tend to have a bit more roasted complexities. I found this
holiday recipe, not wheat based, but uses some of the spices and based on the feedback is semi-good at 3 weeks post packaging. I plan on doing the recipe but was wanting something else, lighter session if you will.
What are your thoughts snazo?
