Finally got around to brewing this SMaSH. I liked DeathBrewers idea of a Munich Dunkel. To help with the color I tried roasting (or is it toasting?) 1 pounds of the Munich (350 degrees for 20 minutes.) It did a good job of darkening the grain and gave it a nutty taste. The whole house was filled with a nice aroma. Also boiled the mash-out decoction for 20 minute in hope of adding to the color. The combination must have worked. This is the darkest SMaSH I’ve ever done. Used a new MLT and got better efficiency. The planned 1.047 OG @ 65% became 1.056 @ 78%. Almost out of style, but just makes it.

Thanks for the input. Now I hope it tastes as good as it looks.

Just another picture. This batch took off quickly on the Munich Lager yeast slurry. The krausen is interesting. Looks better in person. It's like a landscape with snow-covered mountains, or may be a chocolate dessert with whipped cream on it.

Yum! Anyone got a spoon?

That definitely looks darker than mine was. It looks like a red! Munich+toasting+decoction... equals copious melanoidins. Your brewhouse must smell like a toast factory.

Damn! Really? Red? Nice!






I knew I should have asked my wife about the color.
Sucks being color blind (red/green).

So I finally tried 944play's lager last week. It was super tasty (albeit a bit undercarbonated, probably due to BMBF.)

Here are the tasting notes. I'm no pro

Aroma: Fruity, malt comes through nicely. Almost nutty.
Appearance: Light orange color, slight lacing, teeny weeny head.
Flavor: Nice malt complexity, good balance with slight pleasant bitter bite at the end.
Mouthfeel: Rich and full, carbonation detracted a bit.

Overall: Awesomeness. Thanks alot, dude. Despite the carbonation, I enjoyed every sip of this beer.

Thanks for all the recipe info, too. Tett is one of my favorite hops. I may have to try this with a 100% Vienna SMaSH now that I can lager.

Glad you liked. I really wish I had not burned through that keg while it was young. The BMBF'd bottles that sat for another month were much crisper. Now I have two kegs of SMaSH lager to sit on* with no room for the Centennial (Type) Blonde to slot in.

*But I've been sampling. Both are still very yeasty, but:
2-row/Liberty: Bright, fruity, almost lemony.
Pils/Hallertau: Rich, bready, malty, and cantaloupey.
