Beer Style: Munich Dunkel  (4B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 6.8 US gallons

Munich Dunkel
Beer Color


Measured 10 SRM usg BJCP color chart...this Munich Dunkel....was pushed over the alchohol limit (on purpose) but the malts are complex enough that you can't detect it. Malts are complex with strong Munich flavors and no detection of the rice in the balance, but the Mason Jar malt added a distinctive "green malt" flavor that rounds with a slighly acrid ending. It's unusual, but unexpectedly nice although it took the Gelatin to bring out the astringency from early tasting. Might have given it a higher rating except the high Alcohol and unique anerobic malt taste are not to style.
