Maybe I missed it in here but has anybody used 98% Avangard Dark Munich and 2% Carafa II without any issues?  I just bought some from a different homebrew supply store.  I am just wondering if some Pilsner malt in there is a good idea?

i did 80% avangard munich dark, rest avangard light  munich and the carafa II. it will convert all on its own at 100%- just depends what you want in the beer. i'm considering a little pilsner next time in place of the munich light and see how i like that.   all munich dark is malt malt malt....not necessarily a bad thing. just depends on what you like.

Just brewed this one up with WY 2308 about 5 days ago...

6# German Munich Light 8L
6# German Munich Dark 15L
5 oz Melanoiden Malt
5 oz Carafa Special II

No sparged (about 60% eff)

24 IBUs (Hallertau for bittering and flavor), 20 SRM, OG 1.053

Was shooting for a richly malty dunkel with a dry finish and balanced hops

Which German Maltster makes a 15L Dark Munich? Best and Wyermann are only in the 10L +/- range.

I have a bag of Best Dark Munich to use on a Dinkel and Doppelbock.

I use Best Dark Munich and Carafa II. No Pilsner and a huge pitch of WY2206 got me down to 1.012 the last couple of times.

Thanks, I think I'm just going to use the Munich malt and see where it gets me.  I am using a third generation of yeast that has been performing well.

Love it. But I think at 15, I liked it as I used a dry water profile and it finished 1.011. I think I will cut it with some Pils next batch and see what I think

I have noticed that too.  I do really like the 15L, but in too high amounts it can almost be overly malty and sweetly rich. Keeping the water profile dry, mashing a tad lower, and using proper %'s of this malt and can bring an awesome maltiness to this style.
