I'm brewing this Mosher beer from the Radical book. It's the first one that I've tried from here.
7 # DME Light
5# Munich!!!!!!
12 oz med crystal
8 oz dark crystal
2 oz black patent

2 oz cascade at 60
2 oz cascade at 30
2 oz kent goldings at 5

nottinghams dry

does anyone think this is an insane amount of grain, MUNICH! i brewed it but i only had about a 3 gal boils so it was hard to even get this much grain in there. let alone the fact that my grain bag was about to pop!

Sounds pretty good to be actually. I think I would cut down the hop bill though. [email protected] and [email protected] and [email protected] With the original hop bill I think it might hide the nice taste of munich. But with that abv 9.5? by my calc. You will need a descent solid hop to mask it a bit.

That's what makes it RADICAL!!!! But seriously, I've done a few brews from that book and they've all turned out excellent. Lots of good recipes...with a little twist. I was going to try one of these IPA variations soon, but I have a few tweaks to an IPA recipe kegged right now that I NEED to make soon.

You did do a partial mash, right? The Munich's not going to do you much good if it doesn't convert.
