Sounds great & certainly reads like a Dunkel, would love to know how it turns, out. Was going to attempt a Dunkel recently but opted for a Helles Bock instead...so far so good.


A Munich Dunkel eh - You have come a long way from the S05 !
- sounds smashing

My first thought was that I thought you should be using a Weiss Yeast - then I did a some research and found out that Dunkels are traditionally a dark larger made with primarily with Munich malt - looks like you have nailed it !

Can wait to taste it

I cant believe I thought a Dunkel was the same as a DunkelWeiss -   :-/
- boy I need to learn more about beer !!!


Looks nice, if your ever brewing  it again give  the Munich 2 malt a shot


any update on tasting notes and how it turned out, maybe a little early but do let us know.
