I'd always recommend at least a 75-minute boil if not 90 when you're using a lot of Pilsner

do a long boil...

I've made a Dortmunder-type beer with WLP029 and it came out tasting very much like a Czech
Pils. I used Hallertauer instead of Saaz, but other than that the recipe was quite similar

I've never hard a problem with Airgas in Bedford. That's not too far from you - I live in
Twinsburg and work in Beachwood, and usually go before work since they have weird hours.You
