    I've seen a lot of clone recipes to Munich Dunkels and Doppelbocks use both Munich Type 1 and Type 2 in equal parts. Not really sure why, I'm guessing it adds more depth?

    It will make a lager and it will be brown.... The rest depends on you and your process! Oh, why to use both Munichs in a recipe - they do provide slightly different flavors. Light Munich, think bread crust. Dark, think real European bread crust.

    Thanks. Planning on a brown malty water profile and shooting for a pH closer to 5.5 - 5.6 which I like for darker beers.

    Hoping to brew next week if I can make time.

    This is a recipe that I have brewed before and tweaked to this. I really liked the previous version but felt the need to simplify a bit. Still not sure if the 30 minute hop addition is necessary or if I should just get all my IBUs from the first bittering addition. Using both types of munich is great advice however I don't want to change too much yet.

    The traditional German way would be a single hop addition. That's not to say it's how you should do it. What would a 30-minute addition do that the 60 minute addition would not?

    Yep. I do 45 min mash and boils so I will stick with one addition.

    Brewing this tomorrow night. Only change is using only one hop addition. Toying around with using more brown malt but I suppose I will leave it this time.

    Sorry if my updates are annoying...

    Appears to have finished at 1.014. Currently warming up to 62 for d rest and will cold crash in a couple of days. Sample is really nice. Would like to enter as a dunkel depending on how roasty it comes out which seems mild enough at this point.
