Depends on what you're going for. Since you're new to mashing I'd probably just stick to a single infusion one hour mash. It's not hard to do and will produce consistently good results. Step infusions are a little bit harder to get consistent with at home. Not impossible of course but trickier.

So i went ahead and plugged this into BrewMate just to take a look. I'm assuming you're making a 5 gallon batch, which puts your abv at around 11.2% if you're getting 70% efficiency. Your IBU's look good for a dopplebock, super malty is good for a dopplebock too. I'd probably leave it as is. You're not going to learn what this recipe tastes like if you don't make it.

A few things to consider for future reference just based on how I generally make recipes:
* For simplicity sake, the munich dme and munich grains are pretty much the same thing. You could up the dme and not use the munich grains at all.

* I'd probably add a bit of chocolate malt or black patent to give it a touch of roastiness in the finish. I'm a fan of that in a big malty beer.

This started out as a bock extract kit from Northern Brewerminus the yeast. I had some WLP 920-old bavairian lager so i decided id do a doppelbock instead. So i started building a partial mash to go with it. Thats why i have 9 lbs of lme. The specialty malts is where im concerned.

There's nothing wrong with any of those, what are you concerned about?

Using a pound of each. they are sold by the pound so i figured id just use em. but after looking at it it seemed a little excessive. So i thought i would run it buy the folks here and get some input.

11.2% alcohol is on the high side for a dopplebock but its not unheard of. Nothing in your grain bill is going to make it bad or wierd or anything like that. Its just going to be a big beer, on the malty/sweet side. The only reason to use less is to bring down your alcohol % and make it a bit weaker beer.

If you are that concerned about it, just cut all your specialty grains in half. That'll still give you the flavors you're looking for, a big malty sweet beer but it'll balance a bit better and closer to 8% alcohol.
