German Dunkel (variant)

Source: Michael Ledlow
Recipe added: 04/05/97

This brew had excellent head retention, good body, color, and exquisite hop flavor. I had a friend from Munich try this batch, and he said it was one of the best dunkels he had tasted. German Ale yeast wasn't available, but would be interested to try that next time.
