https://byo.com/bock/item/1964-dunkelweizen-style-profile Mill the grains and dough-in targeting a mash of around 1.5 quarts of water to 1 pound of grain (a liquor-to-grist ratio of about 3:1 by weight) and a temperature of 154 ?F (68 ?C). Hold the mash at 154 ?F (68 ?C) until enzymatic conversion is complete. Infuse the mash with near boiling water while stirring or with a recirculating mash system raise the temperature to mash out at 168 ?F (76 ?C). Sparge slowly with 170 ?F (77 ?C) water, collecting wort until the pre-boil kettle volume is around 6.5 gallons (24.4 L) and the gravity is 1.039 (9.7 ?P). The total wort boil time is 90 minutes, which helps reduce the S-methyl methionine (SMM) present in the lightly kilned pilsner malt and results in less dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in the finished beer. Add the bittering hops with 60 minutes remaining in the boil. I skip using kettle finings in this beer. Chill the wort rapidly to 62 ?F (17 ?C), let the break material settle, rack to the fermenter, pitch the yeast and aerate thoroughly. The proper pitch rate is 9 grams of properly rehydrated dry yeast, two packages of liquid yeast or one package of liquid yeast in a 1.5-liter starter. Ferment at 62 ?F (17 ?C) until the beer attenuates fully. With healthy yeast, fermentation should be complete in a week, but don't rush it. The cooler than average ale fermentation temperature can extend the time it takes for complete attenuation. Rack to a keg and force carbonate or rack to a bottling bucket, add priming sugar, and bottle. Target a carbonation level of 2.5 to 3 volumes.
