Munich Dunkel #1 was created by Gash
This is a Munich Dunkel recipe I came up with for a competition, it came 7th in the Dark Lager category at Bayside Brewers Oktoberfest 2014, it was the second highest scoring Munich Dunkel. I pushed the colour and flavours and added special B just to make it stand out a bit in the competition.

I made a yeast starter 24hrs beforehand.

Thanks for the Recipe Gash, definitely one to try when I get my all grain set up next year.

Would you have any advice or a rough guide for someone who wanted to try and brew a Dunkel using an extract? I'm thinking of trying a European Lager extract with some dark malt and ferment with some lager yeast....

Cheers,

Clayton

Sorry I havent got back, but I have thought about it.. so a dunkel shouldnt have any roastiness, so you'd be colouring with a carafa with out the husk, one of the Carafa specials. And guessing it would hurt to mini mash that with some munich malt and a touch of base malt. You up for a mini mash?

No worries Gash, I've been AWOL with uni and a bit of stuff and coming in to a busy season at work so I'm waiting for some free time in a few weeks to give it a crack, I'd love to do a mini mash, I've heard they're a fairly simple way to get some great beer. I'll keep an eye out for a good size stainless pot that I can chuck on the burner and get my ducks lined up. I'm keen to get a fermzilla as well so I'll be getting some gear from kegland shortly to make my life a bit easier.

I'm all ears!

Cool wouldnt need to be too big, just a small one maybe 1 to 2 kilo, guess thats sizeable but easy to do, could mash it in a small stock pot under ten litres, I used to mine in a 7.6 litre pot, Cheers!
