Rainy Day Dunkelweizen
By SpringsLicker

All Grain Batch size 11 gallo
4980 gms (10.98 lbs) Wheat Malt 3320 gms (7.32 lbs) Pilsner Malt 941 gms (2.07lbs) Munich Malt 415 gms (.91lbs) 120L Crystal Malt 103 (.22lbs) Carafa 48gms (1.69oz) German Tettnanger 3.6AA Wyeast Weihenstephan 3068
Mash at 155 degrees and hold for 90 minutes. Add boiling water as needed to hold mash temp. Primary fermentation was 10 days at 68 degrees. Secondary fermentaion 10 days at 68 degrees. Bottle with 489gms dry wheat malt extract boiled for 10 minutes in 4 cups water. Be ready for a violent and turbulent fermentation from this yeast. A 6.5 gallon carboy will still blow off large amounts from a 5 gallon batch of this. If less banana esters and more clove esters are desired, lower the fermentaion temp by ~5-6 degrees.
