I've been looking for a Munich Dunkel, I'd like to try this... Any suggestions/modifications?
1. Get rid of the chocolate malt; wholly inappropriate in a Munich dunkel; replace it with some Carafa I or Carafa II.
2. Increase the Munich malt %, decrease the Pils malt %
3. Pull the thick first runnings and cook them down on the oven top while sparging -this will get you plenty-O melanoidins without having to increase your brew day length by decocting and without having to buy melanoidin malt. Also add a TINY pinch of yeast nutrient to the first runnings. --melanoidin reactions are between proteins and sugars and increasing the protein levels with a small pinch of yeast nutrient will help speed the reactions up.
