Brew Day: Munich Helles

Now that winter is here, and it's time to brew a few lagers.  Today's Munich Helles is the first of 4 that are planned this winter, one of the reason for brewing the Munich Helles first is so that I can grow enough yeast to pitch into the BoPills in a few weeks time.

Munich Helles
Estimated OG: 1.050 SG, Estimated Color: 3.7 SRM, Estimated IBU: 21.0 IBU
Boil Time: 90 Minutes

90.6%    Pilsner (Joe White) (1.6 SRM)
5.7%    Munich I (Weyermann) (7.1 SRM)
3.8%    Carapils (Weyermann) (2.0 SRM)
1.43g/L    Hallertau 08 [4.90%]  (60 min)    21.0 IBU

Mash schedule was adapted from the  Hochkurz Double Decoction on Braukaiser.  Two infusions for rests at 55.5C and 62C and two decoctions for rests at 71C and 76C.  Wort was chilled to 16C out of the CFC and then to 8C in the fridge overnight before it was racked off the trub and break material before the yeast was pitched.
