    OK ... a suggestion for your basement floor ....
    do a Peetermann ... hope I got the spelling right ...
    Its like a dark wit ...
    pilsner malt ... wheat malt ... a bit of munich and chocolate wheat ... double the hops of a normal wit ... and add a touch of cloves and cinnamon with the coriander



    ceannt said:

    Oh.... should be a good bit stronger than a normal wit too ... O.G. up in the 50s



    So goes the build thread for this. Ima try to brew Sunday.

    Here is the recipe?

    I Just slapped some hops in there so I could save the recipe. What do you'ins think about the grain bill? I have centennial and nugget hops in the freezer already. I don't think either of those would fit very well....

    up to you how much, but i always say more munich is better. for my particular tastes, i'd go for 1-2# in a ten gallon batch, otherwise it might get buried under the roasted malts.

    From what I understand, I like Munich. What about 5 lbs?

    that's probably too much for the 'style', whatever that is, but munich is my favorite malt. so it'd still be tasty in my book.

    We're talking about a style that is older than Kenny. I'm not too worried about it. But I'll prolly trim it back anyway.

    Finally got rid of the company and checked it out .... 5 pounds is probably too much munich .... but I would leave it ... it will be good .... double the chocolate wheat .. and kick the IBU up to the mid 20s.. the late addition is perfect

    Try this on for size.

    What do you think about the hops? Something else? Would WGV be good in here? Maybe drop the Hallertau at 30 and drop an ounce of WGV at 20? I don't know...

    The Hallertau is perfect ... maybe just move it to 10 or 5 minutes and bump up the bittering addition ...

    Not sure how much late additions went into them ... but Hallertau is pretty subtle

    mmk. I'll see what AA the have when I go. I'm not going to buy an extra ounce just to gain an IBU or two.

    You can almost use anything for the bittering addition ... except the nugget ... too resiny ... the cascade is fine

    i use magnum for all my german beers. it's high AA, but very clean so you don't have to use much.

    and you won't get any detectable flavor/aroma messing around with the malty goodness.

    What is Nugget good for and why do I have half a pound of it?

    Centennial will work just fine in a pinch
    .. for a 60 minute addition

    Nugget is great for big aggressive murikan beers ... pair it with something like Chinook or similar

    Right... for the 60. But I don't like your "in a pinch" term. I'll be at the LHBS. I could easily get Cascade. Or anything else. But I could save a couple bucks and use Centennial.

    Which is what Ima do unless you freak out on me.

    I know nothing about Chinook. But maybe put nugget in a hoppy barleywine for the bittering addition?
