Notes
  • made this last spring (2017) and it was delicious
  • keeping munich/vienna at 20% each
  • bumped up late hops and switched to saaz from saphir
  • going a bit higher ABV at 7% (expected)
  • water recommendation is a bit high. ended up with a lot of extra wort last time and lower efficiency. Use about 30-32L next time instead of 34
  • dropped Vienna for the 2019 version; not expecting too much of a difference if it's even noticeable at all.
  • 2020: changed to 20% Munich II (10°L)
  • 2022 version came out more like a Märzen with 27% barke munich. Dialed that back to 13% for next time. Also I've been using Sterling for bittering/FWH addition as it seems to have slightly more assertive bitterness than Magnum.
