Default Single Infusion German Pilsner Mash Temp

I am going to make a german pilsner with the following grain bill:

10# Weyermann pilsner
.75# munich malt
.5 # carafoam or carapils
.5# acidulated malt

will be fermnenting with 2nd generation pilsner lager yeast wlp800 (left over from a czech pilsner) or 1st generation southern german lager yeast wlp838

the step mashes are making the brew day too long so I want to try a single infusion mash. For a good german pilsner what temperature should I target. i've been reading any where from 148 to 153?

Anything in that range will work. My preference is for the low end 148-150F with a combination of a little CaraFoam as is in your recipe.

A pilsner should be dry and crisp, so I would go with 148 also.

Thanks, I will do a strike water calculation for mash temp of 148. If i get any where in the range of 146-150 I will not mess with it.
