I'm wondering about WL029 German ale/kolsh yeast,which I have two batches worth of in the fridge. It gave a nice little crispness to my dark hybrid lager I brewed with it. gotta play around with this decotion mashing stuff. I saw a guy do it on youtube that's German. Still don't get all the details,but I'd like to.
Also,since I currently do PB/PM BIAB in my 5G BK/MT,I'd replace 3lbs of the pilsner 2-row with a 3lb bag of plain extra light DME. Worked well in my light hybrid lager recipes for that light color. Darkening is easy with some crystal & chocolate malts I've used so far. Def like to try this,my dad's side being from upper bavaria...
