This is a great Winter beer and I have really been enjoying it.  It’s a rich malty pint but with clean dry-ish finish. Looking at it I think roasty/chocolate/caramel/or even coffee — like a Stout — but then I taste it and realize it’s not that at all. 

Next time, I may back off on the Victory 1 maybe 2% to try for just a bit more dryness.

What attenuation did you get? I always bet 70 - 75% range. They market M84 as high attenuation. I am finding my beers using this yeast come out with rich malty flavors never dry and crisp.

I am using 146 (35 min) /158 (45 min) /167 (10 min) Hochkurz mash. Maybe I need to lengthen the first step and shorten the second?

I got 75%. That’s why I thought about reducing the Vic. — to get it a bit dryer.  I just realized I could probably use a balanced or even dry water profile as well. ...but it’s pretty good as is.

I used 145 for 30 min, 150 for 30, 160 for 45, mash out at 170 for 10.

I recently did a dunkel with m76 which I prefer to m84 now. 84 seems to attenuate less for me and leave a more full bodied beer.

I think I have used M84 four times with similar malty results. It’s a good yeast for a Bock or other more malty beers. I am working my way through lots of dry yeasts. I will have to try M76 again.

My go to lager yeast right now especially for Germans. I like S-189 a lot too but haven’t used it in a while. Nice looking and sounding beer Bama.

It might have a bit more clearing up to do, but I think it looks pretty good for being fermented with WY 3864.
