About this item

?  Brew the Best Dunkelweizen Ingredient Kit for 5 Gallons of Delicious Dunkelweizen

?  IBUs: 10-13

?  Munich and chocolate malts combine to create a darker, meltier version of its lighter counterpart, Hefeweizen. Amber brown in color yet medium bodied with a slightly sweet, bready flavor. A specialty wheat yeast produces the characteristic phenols found in traditional Weizens.

?  Included Components :
       -   Priming Sugar
       -   Bottle Caps
       -   Ingredients (yeast, hops etc., as required)
       -   Grain Bag(s)
       -   Brewing Procedures

?  Additional equipment  needed (not included):
       -   A pot to boil 2.5 gallons of water. 
       -   A thermostat
       -   2 x 6.5 gallon Bubblers 
       -   At least 40  x 16 ounce bottles
.
?   2 Recipes for Comparison (not using this kit)

?   Dunkelweizen  #1
(5 gallons/19 L, all-grain)
OG = 1.050 (12.4 °P)
FG = 1.012 (3.1 °P)
IBU = 15 SRM = 18 ABV = 5.0%

?  Ingredients
6.6 lb. (3 kg) Great Western wheat malt (2 °L) or similar
3.3 lb. (1.5 kg) Durst Munich malt (8°L) or similar
8.8 oz. (250 g) Briess CaraMunich (60 °L) or similar
2.6 oz. (75 g) Weyermann Carafa® Special II (430 °L)
2.96 AAU Hallertau pellet hops (0.74 oz./21 g at 4% alpha acids) (60 min.)
Wyeast 3068 (Weihenstephan Weizen) or White Labs WLP300 (Hefeweizen Ale) yeast

?  Step by Step
Mill the grains and dough-in targeting a mash of around 1.5 quarts of water to 1 pound of grain (a liquor-to-grist ratio of about 3:1 by weight) and a temperature of 154 °F (68 °C). Hold the mash at 154 °F (68 °C) until enzymatic conversion is complete. Infuse the mash with near boiling water while stirring or with a recirculating mash system raise the temperature to mash out at 168 °F (76 °C). Sparge slowly with 170 °F (77 °C) water, collecting wort until the pre-boil kettle volume is around 6.5 gallons (24.4 L) and the gravity is 1.039 (9.7 °P).

?  The total wort boil time is 90 minutes, which helps reduce the S-methyl methionine (SMM) present in the lightly kilned pilsner malt and results in less dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in the finished beer. Add the bittering hops with 60 minutes remaining in the boil. I skip using kettle finings in this beer. Chill the wort rapidly to 62 °F (17 °C), let the break material settle, rack to the fermenter, pitch the yeast and aerate thoroughly. The proper pitch rate is 9 grams of properly rehydrated dry yeast, two packages of liquid yeast or one package of liquid yeast in a 1.5-liter starter.

?  Ferment at 62 °F (17 °C) until the beer attenuates fully. With healthy yeast, fermentation should be complete in a week, but don’t rush it. The cooler than average ale fermentation temperature can extend the time it takes for complete attenuation. Rack to a keg and force carbonate or rack to a bottling bucket, add priming sugar, and bottle. Target a carbonation level of 2.5 to 3 volumes.

?   Dunkelweizen  #2
(5 gallons/19 L, extract with grains)
OG = 1.051 (12.7 °P)
FG = 1.013 (3.2 °P)
IBU = 15 SRM = 15 ABV = 5.1%

?  Ingredients
4.4 lb. (2 kg) wheat liquid malt extract (4 °L)
2.2 lb. (1 kg) Weyermann Munich Amber liquid malt extract (8 °L)
8.8 oz. (250 g) Briess CaraMunich malt (60 °L) or similar
2.6 oz. (75 g) Weyermann Carafa Special II (430 °L)
3.12 AAU Hallertau pellet hops (0.78 oz./22 at 4% alpha acids) (60 min.)
Wyeast 3068 (Weihenstephan Weizen) or White Labs WLP300 (Hefeweizen Ale) yeast

?  Step by Step
I have used a number of wheat and Munich malt extracts with good results. Always choose the freshest extract that fits the beer style. If you can’t get fresh liquid malt extract, it is better to use an appropriate amount of dried malt extract (DME) instead.

?  Mill or coarsely crack the specialty malt and place loosely in a grain bag. Avoid packing the grains too tightly in the bag, using more bags if needed. Steep the bag in about 0.5 gallon (~2 liters) of water at roughly 170 °F (77 °C) for about 30 minutes. Lift the grain bag out of the steeping liquid and rinse with warm water. Allow the bags to drip into the kettle for a few minutes while you add the malt extract. Do not squeeze the bags. Add enough water to the steeping liquor and malt extract to make a pre-boil volume of 5.9 gallons (22.3 L) and a gravity of 1.043 (10.8 °P). Stir thoroughly to help dissolve the extract and bring to a boil.

?  The total wort boil time is 60 minutes. Add the bittering hops with 60 minutes remaining in the boil. I skip kettle finings for this beer. Chill the wort rapidly to 62 °F (17 °C), let the break material settle, rack to the fermenter, pitch the yeast and aerate thoroughly. The proper pitch rate is 9 grams of properly rehydrated dry yeast, two packages of liquid yeast or one package of liquid yeast in a 1.5-liter starter. Follow the remainder of the all-grain version of this recipe.
