I'll be using the staro Prague yeast in another 10 gallon batch.

I was thinking something like half Pilsen and half Vienna malt for the base. Then half a pound of caramunich (I think I have 1 and 3 in stock). Then enough midnight wheat to make it really dark but probably not quite opaque.

I'll bitter with something like Mt hood or hallertau and then finish with hallertau. If use Magnum for bittering if I had it but I don't.

I'll try to keep salt additions to a minimum to keep it soft.

I like the pending design.  How bitter are you thinking?

Probably 30ibu. Finish will be something like 2-3oz of hallertau at flameout.

would 1.5oz of nugget at 30 min really come through in a beer like this?  I don't want to have to put A LOT of mt. hood in to get the IBUs up to 30.

Maybe not super red based on the hydro sample from Brew day but we'll see. Probably more of a dark copper?? I dunno. In any event I have started applying some heat to raise the temp and I'm slowly cranking up the pressure on the spunding valve.

I just kegged the one I made the other day. The formula is in the U Fleku thread.  The beer came out fantastic, I'm sure I'll be doing it again.
