I used the above recipe and I added the dry hops using a nylon grain bad immediately after cooling and adding yeast. Was this appropriate or should I have waited 7 days to add the hops like I have read? Basically i think i am asking a technique for adding the dry hops to this beer appropriately? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the recipe!
Dry hopping should be done well after the fermentation has subsided and the yeast has dropped. Fermenting beer will churn away a lot of the aroma and a beer laden with yeast (during fermentation) is not as clean and will not "absorb" the hop flavors/aroma as well. Still not too late. Just wait and add some more.

I just brewed a 5 gallon batch of this last night and only after the mash did I realize that I used the wrong Munich. I accidentally ordered 1lb of DARK Munich, SRM 30. According to BeerSmith the difference in color is 2 SRM but I am more concerned about the flavor contribution from the Dark Munich. Either way it should be tasty, but I am brewing a batch with the right Munich malt next month - I need to compare...

BierMuncher, I have everything on hand but the Honey Malt. Any suggestions for a replacement?

IMO, it's the Honey Malt that sets this one apart. I would do whatever you could to get some in your hands before brewing this recipe.

I'm vacationing in the USA, and finally had a chance to try the commercial version. It's great! But my clone was nothing close. I used the Kolsch yeast, but used 2-row instead of Maris Otter. The commercial version is WAY more maltier. Have to try again.

Make sure to get that mash temp up to the mid 150's (154-156) and try shortening the rest time to 45 minutes.
