Batch 237, Dunkelweizen

I'm going for something similar to Erdinger's Dunkelweiss, which is one of the nicest beers I've ever had. It's best enjoyed in Germany, of course, but on occasion it can be found here in the States.

10 gallon batch

10 lb Munich
10 lb white wheat
4 lb 2-row
9 oz chocolate wheat
5 oz chocolate malt

Mashed in with 10 gallons, hit 151F, adjusted pH to 5.3.

1 oz Magnum, 60 minutes
1 oz Mt Hood, 10 minutes
2 tsp Irish Moss, 10 minutes

90 minute boil

Wyeast 1010 - American Wheat for yeast, I made a 2 quart starter. This yeast doesn't have any of the banana or clove flavors that regular German hefeweizen yeast has, those would be inappropriate for this style.

OG: 1.055, 1.060 actual
FG: 1.013
ABV: 5.7%
SRM: 18.7
IBU: 24

Smooth and easy brew day, although the weather was a little blustery, a regular spring day.
