Sorry, no help on cloning Franziskaner in particular: But, I love a good dark wheat!

I brewed a batch of it from a recipe from my LHBS and ended up liking it more than the Franz, Weihenstephaner, Echter, and Hacker Pschorr varieties.

I have found both the WLP300/3068 or the WLP380 Yeast to be great for the beers.

Look for DeathBrewer's thread on Easy Partial Mash Brewing and try his Dunkleweizen recipe. It's very simple and tastes pretty close to Franziskaner, from what I remember.

I love dark wheat beers..

I've posted a few times for a clone for Unibroue- Chambly Noire and no one had one.

FYI if you want to drink the best Dunkle Weiss in the world run and get yourself a bottle of Two Brother- Bonfire Dunkle Weiss.. Best ever.

anyhow, hopefully someone posts a recipe for a good Dunkle.

I was hoping to brew up a batch of Dunkle Weiss and throw a couple pounds of cherrys in the secondary.

yep, it's close. link is in my sig. use WLP300 and ferment in the low 60s for banana and clove. use WLP380 for more apricot and other fruity notes (my preference for dunkelweizen)

EDIT: what am i doing. it's so simple:

6 lbs Wheat Malt
4 lbs Munich Malt
0.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
0.75 oz hops for 60 minutes (tettnanger, hallertau or saaz)
WLP380

bam. done.

that's all-grain. partial mash would be:

3 lbs Wheat Malt
2 lbs Munich Malt
0.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
3 lbs Dry Wheat Malt Extract (or 4 lbs Liquid)
0.75 oz hops for 60 minutes (tettnanger, hallertau or saaz)
WLP380

you can't really do an extract version of this recipe because it needs the munich.

lol...whoops! i usually use tettnanger. 0.75 ounce is pretty close to what you need if it has an average alpha acid content.

hallertau and saaz are also acceptable.

The Saaz will add a little spiciness. This is what I use in addition to Tettnanger. helps your brew stand apart from others.
.75 oz Tettnanger .25 oz Saaz
