Wondering if you would be able to check out this idea for a Dunkel weiss.
I,m using IanH spreadsheet but it doesn't have Midnight wheat or Munich dark.
My son did a Devils Brew Porter and as we had these ones, we used these grains instead of Chocolate Malt.
100grams of Midnight and 200 grams of Munich steeped in 2l of water seemed to give off a fair bit of colour but I'm not sure how it will look in a lighter coloured brew and am only guessing I would end up with a dark red brown dunkel.





Thomas Coopers Preacher's Hefe Wheat (1.7kg)
Thomas Coopers Wheat Malt Extract (1.5kg)
Briess Bavarian Wheat LME (0.5kg)
Midnight Wheat cold steeped for 24 hours (0.150kg)
Munich Dark cold steeped for 24 hours (0.20kg)
Saf WB-06 yeast

Also would you put the Coopers yeast in as well?

I have done a Weiss dunkel and it turned out really well - even my German uncle commented on how authentic it was.

heres what i did - and it was easy

Thomas coopers Wheat Beer 1.7
Thomas Coopers wheat malt 1.5,
wheat yeast
Crystal Malt 310g,
Midnight malt 210g

Steeped the grains together for 24 hours in a 4Lt pot in the fridge
brought the grain up to boil and mixed into FV with the wheat beer abd wheat malt
filled with cold water to 21L
mine stayed a steady 23 degrees, but cooler is more ideal. nonetheless my brew tasted awesome!
day 8 i decanted into another FV to clear it up
10 days OG 1050 FG 1012 - about 5.6% in the bottle. what you would expect from a good german dark ale.
wasn't using hops back then… i would add some next time perhaps??

Cheers Tonzbrew, sounds like I need to up the Midnight Wheat a bit if I go for 23l.
The colour came out good did it?
