About the same distance. Chicago traffic might make it longer.

Thirsty Monk is also on my list to visit. Too bad I missed your beers at NHC.

Yeah, I dickchimped it.  Shoulda contacted both you and Gladish.

Drive thru Chicago thru night. See you in the morning.
That is advice I would have been all over 25-30 years ago Leos. I'm old. Not quite Denny old, but old nonetheless.

We are only as old as we want to be. Drinking that Vienna right now.

Actually the outer ring in Chicago is not that bad. Have your quarters ready. 

Back to the recipe. If you use 1/3 of pils, Munich, Vienna an 1-2% dark malt it will be about right. Get continental malts. This is important. Hops? Use neutral hops like hellertau. Ibu about 22-24. OG can be from 11-14 Plato. But the you are the brewer. Make it what you want it.

Good luck.

Is the dark Munich something like 30L?

20L I think

Briess makes 20L Munich that is quite strong. I would not use it as a base malt. Shills dark Munich used to be 15L but now it is about 10L.

Agreed...dark Munich typically runs 10L range.

Durst has a 40 EBC Munich, that turns out to be 15.5 Lovibond.
Schill also has one that dark.

The reason I asked because I was looking in Beersmith and the Gambrinus Dark Munich is listed at 30L and the light at 10L.  I think I'll shoot for something in the 10-15L range.

This is where my assumption comes from. I use the gambrinus or the great western and they are both 10L for the 'light' or normal.

This is making me want to delete all of the malts in my software and build up again using name brands.

The dark munich we(devils backbone) use is on the darker side, 20 range I would have to double check on the brand I believe it is the shills off the top of my head.

Depends on batch size and expected efficiency. Let me know both and I can throw it together.
