Plan is to develop strongly malty but clean Altbier, with higher gravity than per style. IBUs to balance strong malt. Mash at 152 to develop more fermentable wort. Can cut extra Munich if needed. Try to ferment at around 62F to minimize fruity esters for about 6-7d, transfer to corny for lagering for at least two weeks.
Strike water: 8.6 gallons, 7.3 gallons into boil; should give 5.5 gallons into fermenter.
Previous brew used WLP036, with good flavor but poor flocculation. Will try WLP029, a Kolsch yeast which has better flocculation and attenuation characteristics.
