This is why I would rather brew my own German beer than buy commercial German in the 'States. It's never as good as over there, and I can do better (than most abused imported commercial examples) at home.
Besides, I get to Germany for a few weeks almost every year to visit the GF's parents, so I get my fix while there.

That brew was a 55mg/l no sparge with the Braumeister. Not being able to underlet and with some dripping when raising the malt pipe I haven't dared to go lower but recently got a kilo of antioxin SBT so will be working with that aswell.

My thinking is not that smb is like bleach. Bright wort that is unoxidized has its own color and won't be brighter with a too high SMB dose. Lack of anti oxidizers and oxygen will darken but SMB won't lighten (unless compared to "normal brewing procedures".

I just stumbled across a picture I took of my wheat beer with 10% caramel malt at 50EBC (Best Karaaromatic).

Looks pretty close to the Franziskaner IMO. PS: It's delicious regardless :P

I just had a Paulaner Hefeweizen this wekend, and it's been a while since I've had it, but I was surprised at how dark it was in the glass (it was draft in the 'States).

The Paulaners I get from my regular waterhole, vom fass, are golden. It's so sexy that I can't find words for it.
