6.75 german wheat
1 german munich
.75 chocolate malt

.75oz Tettnang (@60)

WLP300
I like that. Hmm Hmm. "I don't know," that's nice. 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' 'Gee Mr. Spicoli, I don't know.' That's nice, I really like that. You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to leave your words on my board for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

No need to color between the lines. It’s your beer — call it what you like.

Looks like it could pass as a dunkel to me!

Dunkel Weizen and Dunkel are 2 different animals (I'm sure you know this but everytime I brew a dunkel at the brewery the staff calls it a dunkel weizen and it drives me crazy).

 And yes you can certainly cal it a dunkel weizen.

I like a little more Munich in mine, but that certainly looks like a Dunkelweizen to me.

You’re absolutely correct, majorvices.  Dunkel is German for “Dark” and Weizen is German for “Wheat” and it looks like the proposed grain bill will provide both.  I think I simply got lazy with my response.  But thank you for pointing that out!  :D. On the subject, I will be brewing a Dunkel on Monday - no wheat in the grain bill.

Dunkel and Dunkel Weizen are two of my favorite styles.
