Notes: Gordon likes to do a step mash for this beverage, mashing just the Munich malt only and then adding in the melanoiden and carafa at the end of the mash.  I've added the recommended mash temp as a single infusion above but this beverage can be step mashed or decocted if you prefer to do it the traditional way. He also recommends to boil for 90 minutes.
