    Dingemans Munich malt undergoes higher kilning temperatures than pale malt. The resulting malt will lend a full, malty flavor and aroma, and an orange-amber color. This malt can make up to 100% of the grain bill, but low diastatic power makes this malt unsuitable for use with adjuncts.

I haven't brewed this yet....probably in a couple of days. All of the half pound amounts of grains are ones that I had leftover from other batches


Brewed It!

I finally got a chance to brew this, (it was formally known as Big Scottie) and I must have had a really good efficiency, or got more gravity out of the DME than calculated, but, I ended up adding more water to adjust the OG and ended up with about 11.5 gallons @ 1.100. So I should still be able to get about 10% ABV out of it.
