I've brewed 12 batches of extract and most of the recipes have called for about 1.5# of specialty steeping grains, which turned out ok but I feel like with not enough unique flavor or body. So, for my latest brew that I tried keeping true to the recipe (Dunkel Weisse) I used 2# 11oz steeping grains to add to the flavor and body. 1# Caramunich 3, 8oz aromatic munich, 8oz flaked oats, 4oz carafa 1 dehusked, 3oz midnight wheat, 4oz rice hulls. I know the rice hulls don't add to the flavor or color but to the chemistry of the oats. As for extracts, I used 7# wheat DME.
I'm wondering if there's a maximum amount of steeping grains that would overpower the intended extract recipe to potentially overpower the flavor.
