I lost respect for those who claimed this would turn out bad!

I just tried a AllBitterTonOMunichAle that most said would be horrible and this beer is a great hoppy beer that tastes similar to a SnakeDog IPA.

This was a 5 gallon batch made with 10lbs Munich, 3lbs Wheat, 3oz Cascade and Danstar Nottingham. OG 1.081 FG 1.010 9.3% ABV

You can't taste the alcohol, you only feel it.

I got the same naysayers when i was going to brew an IPA with Munich malt. i ended up just using pale? What did people say would be wrong with it? And if it turned out great then good for you!

Wow, that's some AMAZING efficiency. I would have gotten about 1.060 out of that grainbill.

Really, if you use good quality ingredients and solid processes, you can produce good beer. It's that simple. You may not produce beers that match up perfectly to the standard beer types but they will still be delicious.

Rightly so! I can't see anything wrong with that recipe.

It's easy to be a critic; harder to brew good beer.

Interesting beer! Your high attenuation probably really helped make it what it is.

Right on brother. I'd wager a good many beers never get brewed based on the opinions of others. If it sounds good to you, go for it.

Technique is the most important aspect to homebrewing. Don't get me wrong, using the right quantities of quality ingredients is crucial, but you can take what many would consider a strange or downright ridiculous recipe and make great beer if your brewing technique is sound. Likewise, you can take a proven recipe, using top quality ingredients, and make crap. It's all in the technique.

Here's to being creative and experimenting. :mug:

I does not have quite the hop quality from start to finish, but the bittering apect is very similar. I does not taste exactly like it but that is the first that popped into my mind when I thought of a comparison. Try the recipe out for yourself, if you like a hop-bomb, you will not be disappointed.
