Then performed 15 minute single decoction.
Returned decoction to mash for Saccharification Rest at 152f for 30 minutes
mash out at 169f

I think the WLP 830 strain worked really well in balancing the amount of Munich malt in this beer. I was very pleased with my results. Next time around I may try this with some Crystal Hops in the Kettle.

Northern Brewer calls the Weyerman Carafa III de-husked...which is what I originally used.

This is a style that i've never tried to create. Is the recipe true to the standards of the style? I'm really not versed in this one.

Aside from the addition of the wheat, I think this recipe is very true to the style. I prefer to keep the Munich just over 50% on this one.
Some brewers have even been known to add roasted barley to the grist.

Most of the craft brewed examples I have tried are always too roasty. I think Glibbidy's recipe sounds like a very good representation of the style

Which Crystal is recommended for this recipe? I may brew this one soon.
You could get away with anything in the 20L-90L on this one. Your just looking to add some sweetness. You'll get most of the color from the Carafa special III de-husked.

Brewed this today. I hit the 1.052 target spot on despite forgetting it's a 90 minute boil and doing the standard 60. Probably not a big deal but only time will tell. I'll do my best to remember to post here when it's drinkable! Cheers!

Hopefully you'll get lucky and not get DMS forming.
