I've been looking into trying to brew some kind of dark German lager. I'm gravitating towards the dunkel, but I'm also thinking doppelbock or schwarzbier as well.
The issue is that my base grain would be Canadian 2-row. I have a lot of it I'd like to use up. I also have some specialty grains I wanted to use. These include:
black malt, chocolate malt, carafa special III
aromatic malt, honey malt, carahell
rye, toasted flaked rye, acidulated
Anywho, I was thinking of making some kind of rich, malty, dark-ish German lager using some of the caraf special and some aromatic and perhaps carahell.
I know the aromatic malt is a Munich malt, so I could use the full pound I have to make up for the overall loss of Munich malt.
Thoughts? Could I create a decent hybridized dunkel using 2-row as my base grain rather than Munich?
As for the yeast, I've been looking at the Wyeast 2124 bohemian lager.
