I concur with Denny, I just cannot nail down that maltiness and mouthfeel of a good German Dunkel! Next batch I will try decoction and more melanoidin malt.
Ya know, I'd almost suggest you skip the melanoidin. While there is a wonderful maltiness to dunkels, there is no sweetness in the best examples I've tried. Melanoidin might add too much sweetness. OTOH, I could be completely wrong!
