Ok, I had my head in my ass today. So here's the rundown, I got my Dunkelweizen recipe together before going to the LBS. Although they do have a huge selection, they didn't have everything I need. Here's the original grain bill:
Dunkelweizen, 5.5 gal
5.5# Munich II (20 SRM)
3.5# Dark Wheat Malt (9 SRM)
2.0# Wheat Malt (2SRM)
0.5# Carafa I (337 SRM)
So according to BeerSmith, this looks pretty solid. Well, I couldn't track down any 9 SRM Dark Wheat Malt so turning to the next closest thing, I found Blackprinz which is a whopping 500 SRM! Stupidly, replacing 30% of the grain bill with the BLACKEST of the black malts!!! (This is already crushed and mixed up)
What should I do about this? The only thing that comes to mind is increasing the % of all the other malts to effectively lower the ratio of Blackprinz to non. I have a fresh Hefeweizen yeast cake that I'm itching to use. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, feel free to ridicule a little. I realize this is a funny situation.
