Hersbrucker are more spicy and slightly floral, as opposed to stonefruit IMO.

Edit - I saw you say dry hops. Alt really isn't a beer to dry hop FWIW. Not sure if you meant that.

Hmm, okay.  Well, back to the drawing board.  I love experimentation so I might try something different.

No harm in making the beer you want to drink but for stonefruit you will need some different hops. I took an Altbier recipe and added some cascade and citra hops at flameout effectively making it something like an Amber ale. It was delicious.

I guess I'm going for a malt forward Alt with some spice and very subtle stonefruit. I want good head retention and medium body. I've adjust my grist bill to be:

8.75# German Pils
2# Munich
1# Caramunich
.25# Carafa I

After changing the Grist bill significantly I'm sitting at:

1.060 OG
38.3 IBUs
16.1 SRM
6.1% est. ABV

Just out of curiosity, where are you hoping to get stonefruit from?

Zum Uerige is my favorite, but it has the least malt flavor and the most bitterness.

Brewtopalonian, Schlüssel and Schumacher have mor Munich malt character. You could google Jamils Cowboy Alt to get something in the way of Schlüssel.

You can go higher on the Munich if you want.

Yeah I have never brewed that recipe but want to for comparison sake. I have had Grimm Brothers version which I believe has a GABF medal in the category but is on the other side of the spectrum.

I have been wanting to brew a more traditional alt but I usually end up with an Alt influenced Amber Ale because I my propensity to hybridize. I digress...

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Attenuation question

When I was extract brewing I had the same issues with attenuation. I started subbing in some plain old table sugar for a portion of the fermentables which made a huge difference. It looks like that tip is included in dmtalyor's post...

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Beergun or alternative?

I was at the LHBS yesterday and saw they had another beer gun brand that looked pretty nice. I cannot remember the name...

I am starting to go back to bottle conditioning for prolonged shelf life. I normally keg but if I bottle; I will use the beer gun when I will consume in relatively short order or bottle condition when I plan to let it sit for a while. My only issue is less clear beers from settled yeast.

I have had some horribly oxidized beers when using the beer gun but some of that has to do with the user...

Here is the recipe I have saved for Zum Uerige on my system. If you search you can find more detail in older threads. The grain and hop amounts might be slightly different.

I always assumed that Alts consisted of high percentages of Munich malt. If I was to brew my own I would still include at least 20% out of personal preference.

96.25% pilsner
2.5% caramunich III
1.25% carafa III

20 g Mittelfruh 6.5% 60 min
13 g Perle 7.5% 60 min
32 g Spalt 5% 20 min
(With the exception of Perle, I don't get hops with that high of a AA% so I need to use more)

OG 1.049
FG 1.009
~43 IBU
~10 SRM

I think I may have found an issue with my beer gun process after re-reading Blichmann's instructions. I don't think I have been using the included 10' long 3/16" liquid tubing which they recommend. I have just been using the liquid tubing from my keg to faucet which is probably about 6'.

I think I will reattempt the beer gun method so that I can stick with my normal fermentation schedule and get some cold conditioning on the beer.

Thanks guys. I may attempt the beer gun again. Something in my process and setup in lacking and has created some pretty foamy fills with badly carbonated beer. I think it's mostly related to not everything being cold enough.

The beer is slightly misentered anyway because the category was removed so not expecting the best score.
