Munich Dunkel is a malt oriented German dark lager. It is a rich complex beer with flavours of warm toasty bread crust and rich caramel and toffee. Despite the malt forward flavour, Munich Dunkel has a dry finish and does not come across as overly sweet making it a very sessionable beer.
Traditionally Munich Dunkel would have been made using a decoction mash to encourage the Maillard reactions that help give the beer its rich malty flavours. The ATF Munich Dunkel uses a small amount of Melanoidin Malt to help provide the maltiness typical of the style.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Lager yeast if fermented cold.
If you are unable to perform a cold fermentation you can ferment warm (20℃) using Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager yeast or Fermentis SafLager W-34/70.
Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.
