Switched up the Dunkel at the last min. I bumped up the bittering to 20 and added an ounce of Saphir at 10. I guess that makes it a Vienna

Saphir Wiener!
I like it...sounds good!

i'm actually primarily avangard pils..not best..cant get that here.  But I also like weyermann malts quite a bit. Recently brewed pils with barke pils malt...like it a lot. I'm also fond of blending the malts-adds a little complexity and something different.

I'd go right after a pils with 835 and then go from there. simple and you'll know for sure if you have the process down or not.

I've been saving different steps and single infusion Pils and comparing them recently. As I said earlier, one thing that's trending is the body and foam retention  and foam density. Interesting is that single infusion 148f for 90 min and the step at 30-45 min at 144F and 45min at 158f as Compared to step of 60min st 143-144f and 60mins at 163f are thinner in mouthfeel and noticeably thinner foam and shorter foam retention time. The single infusion is FG of 1.008, the shorter step 30-45/45 is 1.012, and the 60/60 step is 1.008. The higher gravity beers actually have thinner mouthfeel then the 1.008 60/60 step....this is very interesting to me.

Jesse's (beersk) most excellent black IPA. I'm a big fan of a good one, and he nailed it. Could crush  pint after pint of this one- nicely done man

Gee, thanks, man! That's a nice looking pour too. Wow.

the potential of the pour comes from within the beer....not from within the person who pours. all credit therefore goes to the brewer, and not the person who pours Jesseson  8)

Sorry, Paul. That's just not going to be a good beer. You didn't run your hochkurz mash long enough and high enough for your hochmash. Also, where's the carahell???
Just kidding, dude! Sounds tasty. Prost!

haha - I know you're ribbing me, but is that what Bryan meant when he said 60/60?  I've been doing 20-40 min at each step based on kai's recommendations, but I guess I've been doing it wrong.

funny, I did consider carahell but I figured I'd give myself a break on that one - last 3 lagers have all had it.

i switched my dort up recently. mostly pils with some light 6L munich base, and then blend of carahell and caramunich I 55L

You guys should run over to the how to ship homebrew thread, and add that shipping with LoJack highly recommended ...makes tracing where it's at much easier!

Amarillo and equinox IPA with wlp007 - 95.2% pale ale malt, 4.8% carared.

very cool - I'm doing  a Citra/Equinox IIPA with 96% 2row/4% carared next month.  be interested to compare notes.
That sounds good also. It's my pretty standard IPA recipe- just switch hops of choice in.

Ken I don't know equinox yet, but everything else sounds great. I think I have a pound of equinox just have not used any yet
Same here- maiden voyage with it.
