Go for a Schwarzbier, they're delicious.

I made one with all Munich extract, a true Schwarzbier has some Pilsner in it as well, but my LHBS didn't supply Pilsner extract. I even used the dry lager yeast and I think it came out great.

I lagered it for about four months, so you're not looking at a beer that has a quick turn around, but it's worth the wait.

thx heinz--the 4 months blows but may just have to buy some extra buckets for that batch

Well actually, because I REALLY like this beer, I was thinking of keeping the malt bill the same, but using some ale yeast.

Granted the taste will be different, but I'm hoping it won't be that different.

Just a thought.
