decided to throw together a dunkelweizen today, cuz i freed up a primary and hell, why not? you can't go wrong with a good hefe. this one was a partial mash. it was made mostly from leftovers. the recipe says the color was low, but i think with a 90 minute boil, extract darkening and carmelization, it should do fine. this is the first time i've used this yeast.

just thought i'd share :mug:

I just made a Dunkelweizen from NorthernBrewer my wife got me as a gift.

5.0 lbs Dark Wheat Malt
3.5 lbs Durst Pilsner Malt
1.0 lbs German Dark Munich 40 EBC
0.5 lbs Caramunich® TYPE II
0.25 lbs Special B - Caramel malt
0.35 oz Magnum (14.9%) - added during boil, boiled 60.0 min
3.7 g Magnum (14.9%) - added during boil, boiled 2 min
1.0 ea WYeast 3333 German Wheat

Turned out dry and on the tart side, but this is mostly from the yeast. Good beer.

there are a LOT of dark malts in there. was it black? magnum seems a little strange for a weizen, too. as long as it came out good!

i try to use tettnanger whenever possible for my wheat beers. i've only got 2.25 ounces left, tho :( maybe i can get some rhizomes this year...i need to at least save some for the summer so i can make an AG version of my american "hoppy" hefeweizen.

i usually regulate my temp to the low 60s, too. i'm not worrying so much for this one...looks like it's going to be in the 68-70 range. a little more banana, probably...we'll see how this yeast takes care of it.
