I'm gonna try brewing a Sticke this weekend.

Please comment/critique the following (the grain bill is just a bumped up simple Alt grain bill):

89% Light Munich
10% CaraMunich
1% Carafa Special II

~16 deg Plato OG
WLP011 European Ale yeast

Bittering hops: Magnum
Flavor/Aroma hops: Hallertau @ FWH/Flamout/Dry

I haven't dry-hopped in forever but i guess it's almost required for this style? And what would be the minimum IBUs for a brew like this?

I'd guess that you'll want to hit at least around 40 IBU.

This beer is wide open to interpretation though, so go with whatever you think will work for you. The only help I found in the BJCP guidelines were that this beer is supposed to be much more complex than a Düsseldorf Alt, so I tried to make it much more complex.

IMO, a Pils base for this beer along with some Munich and/or Vienna really makes it.

Thanks. I prob have just enough Pils left to do it that way. I have some Biscuit and Special B too so I'll add something to make it more than just a turbo Alt.

Here's an article from the German Beer Institute on Sticke Alt.
