Ewww. Does this mean that I have the last remaining bottle from this batch? Gunna do my best to hang onto it until my version is ready. For now I have mine lagering in a carboy instead of a keg. Thats my only hope for staying out of it before its time.

Looking forward to hearing how this turns out. I have a Vienna/Vanguard lager SMaSH on tap. Its clean but very tasty. (22 IBU - .47 IBU/SG) I have a neighbor who has been hard to please. Shes not a big drinker, but downed three pints of the stuff during the Super Bowl.

Patience is good! Kegged the Munich Dunkel today. This is from a sample force carbed with a Carbonator Cap. Very pleased! You'd never guess that this is a SMaSH. Check out the clarity and color. My wife say, ruby red.

I'm doing a Munich/Tett lager again!

11lb 6.5L Munich
1.75oz Tettnang 3.4% 60min
.25oz Tettnang 3.4% 10min
WLP838/WY2308 (used one pack of each) harvested from my B3 Vienna

Expecting ~1.053 and ~25 IBU. Planning a single decoction 140-154F again. Maybe I'll add a mashout this time.

Have you tried first wort hopping the 1.75oz of tett?

I have FWH'd a few times and liked the beer, but I'm going for a classic noble bitterness on this. According to this Chris Colby article, this beer will be a Mrzen -- and danged if it isn't right in the middle of the BJCP ranges.

Mine was FWH'ed with Tett, but 1oz. pre-boil and additional 1/2oz additions at 20 and 10 minutes remaining in the 75 minute boil. Ive used this same batch of hops in other styles. Here it adds a softer bittering, but with similar flavor and aroma.


Hey Matt, mine has been hooked up to the CO2 for long enough now that its ready to drink. I managed to hang onto a bottle of yours from that last batch. Ive been looking forward to comparing our different approach to this SMaSH. Let you know.

Hey, OT a bit but I really like your MO/Vanguard SMASH. The other one (Fuggle IIRC) I found was too much hop flavor vs. bitterness. Maybe it needed some time.

Yeah, the Vanguard keg has been kicked for a while now, but the Fuggle SMaSH just isn't coming along like I'd hoped. Think I'll take your advise and pull it out of the fridge and let it sit for a month or so.

Getting back to the Munich/Tett, I'm looking forward to getting it into the hands of a BJCP judge or just some brewers familar with the Munich Dunkel style for a critique. I'm very pleased with it, but lack the experience to know if it fits within style guidelines. Got to get around to some BMBF before it runs dry!

Got about 80% efficiency on this one for 1.056 OG. Double decoction 138-154-167F. Everything went swimmingly until I went to pitch. I had the washed yeast in a growler, so I poured off most of the water and shook up the yeast -- I never expected 838 to be so flocculent! The yeast kinda oozed out in two big chunks and the slurry that followed overflowed my little funnel.
