You need to learn to read malt analysis sheets, they are your sight glass into the answers.... for instance, the Munich I have in my inventory is just as modified as the pilsner.

Thanks

Kai found much less attenuation when using Best Dark Munich in comparison to Weyermann Pilsner and Munich I when conducting single infusion mashes. As Denny noted, it very well be related to the maltster and the type of munich malt

I have found no difference between Best pils and Best dark Munich.

I said kai found a difference when compairing Weyermann Pilsner, Munich I, and Best Dark Munich...

I didn't use Best but it just signifies what I might be seeing...

Other than cost savings, this is the primary reason I buy base grains by the sack.

Yep, I realized that.  Just giving another comparison.  I get great attenuation with Best pils and the same with Best dark Munich.

Got ya. Thanks.

At this point I will shut it down as I am not getting anywhere except probably becoming an annoyance  ;)
I will just hope that the beer somehow drops a couple of points before packaging and adjust the recipe to include some pilsner, and possibly modify the mash for next attempt.

Thanks for the help all.

EDIT- I found the old thread I started regarding the first version of this beer from about a year ago. I experienced pretty much the exact same problem with Munich 6L. I didn't make any adjustments because I chalked it up to a less than healthy fermentation. I forget to go back a take a look at my notes from previous batches. This is a perfect example of why I should do so more often....

That I was able to recreate the same issue without realizing it?  ;D

The 6L and 9L must be very similarly modified I would assume. They stopped at pretty much the exact same FG...

The willingness to put this much effort into an issue and tracking down your notes.  Lesser brewer's would had hit the "meh. F! It button" about 3x by now.
