You could probably get away with a pound of maris otter but if your gonna mess around with a partial mash use as much fresh malt as possible. This is how people start doing full BIAB. Good luck.

Looks very good. I have used pilsner malt and boiled 60 minutes w/o DMS. I like your grain bill, a bit of bready from the maris otter and some toasty color from the dark munich. Good luck.
