You want to pay attention top IBUs as well. Just cutting in half will not give you the same IBUs. Correct me if I'm wrong somebody. I think this will be my August brew. A nice quick Octoberfest Need to purchase some Krugs!

Couple of questions:
The munich I have on hand is 10L. Should I tweak one of the crystal malts up to compensate for color (in either quanity or color?)
currently with the 10L the SRM is at 12.

I only have about 1.5 oz tettnang on hand, but I do have Fuggles 4.5%, perle 8.3%, willamette (1 oz ea) and 2 oz Hallertau 3.9%?

Any sugestions on an alternate hopping schedule?
I was thinking
1oz perle 60min
1oz tettnang 45min
.5oz tettnang 30min
.5oz hallertau 30min

Puts my IBU at 24...

Or is it really worth it to spring the addlitional $5-7 for all tettnang? I need to stop at the LHBS for Aromatic and S-04 anyway...

I've got a 5 gallon batch coming off the secondary in the next week. This stuff is beautifully clear, light and refreshing. Hop balance is great and maltiness comes through well without being overbearing. Thanks for contributing a great recipe biermuncher!

This recipe is going to pick up momentum in the next 60-90 days. That cool blast of Autumn air is just around the corner.

I agree. I'm going to kick out 10g this weekend. I decided that the hops are getting so cheap that I broke down and got the Tett while at the LHBS getting S-04....

Would you mind posting your recipe for the 5 gallon batch so I could see where your quantities fell compared to the original recipe.

Since I have a bit of MO that I would like to use up, how would this rate if it was subbed for the Pils? Would I need to cut back on the Munich? Would you advise against using MO since the recipe has plenty of of specialty grains? Going for the sweet malty profile is what is being acheived, so I would think MO would accentuate this? Thoughts.

I think you're good with a complete MO substitute. This is supposed to be on the malty side and the MO will just compliment that profile a bit.

I'm doing a 10g batch of this bad boy today! Currently 10min. into the mash.

I am leaning towards using the s-05.
