I'm surprised you are going to cold crash this. My thought is you want those yeast to stay in suspension so that they can be consumed.

I think this may have been part of my problem. When I put her in the kegerator, the temp was a bit low so i think it effectively cold crashed.

Although I haven't tried to cold crash with a Dunkel before, from what I have read you most certainly can do it successfully. This guy did a 7 day cold crash (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f70/erdi...-clone-146651/) for an Edinger Dunkel clone.

Three weeks in primary and an overnight cold crash should give it all the clarifying I need. I put my Hefe in secondary for about a week and I think it's too clear.

I would never intentionally do it. It is an abomination to hefeweizens. Then again the same recipe called for an american wheat yeast so if you are not shooting for an authentic style it may just suit your tastes.

After a week of bottle conditioning and carbonation this beer is looking to be one of my best if not the best of my brews. Will check back in another two weeks but I like it!

I am trying this recipe this weekend. My local brew shop has Hallertau hops but not the Hallertau Hersbrucker. I am assuming this will be a safe substitution but would feel more confident with verification from a more experienced brewer! Thanks

...also cant wait to double the batch size and make 10 gallons of it. Love dunkelweizen!

I brewed this last weekend, fermenting with WB06 (never tried this yeast before, but the LBHS was out of the liquid yeasts I wanted for this). This is actually the first time I've brewed a wheat beer (not generally a huge fan of the wheat beer styles but enjoy dunkel).
I'll post my results. Oh, I haven't bottled a batch in years, so I'm not looking forward to that step...
