ATF Munich Dunkel

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 Aurora Malt to help provide the maltiness typical of the style.

Yeast is not included in the kit. If fermenting cold we recommend using Froth Krisp (Assumed Origin: Weinhenstephan) or:

  • Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Lager yeast or
  • Fermentis SafLager W-34/70 or
  • Lallemand Diamond Lager Yeast

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.

Note on Fermentation Temperature

Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager Yeast

Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager yeast a unique lager strain that has the ability to ferment at ale temperatures and still provide a typical lager flavour profile. 

Fermentis SafLager W-34/70

Sensory testing performed by Fermentis on W-34/70 shows that it is a very robust yeast capable of providing a clean neutral flavour profile across a wide range of fermentation temperatures (12 - 20).  Click here to download the Fermentis iPhone app for more information.
