So it seems like everything I read says to boil for 90 mins to reduce DMS. Should this be done for all beers? Are there any disadvantage to 90 minute boil in comparison to 60 minute boils? Any styles of beer not suited for 90 minute boil?

The 90 minute boil isn't going to hurt anything in most recipes, except for maybe your propane/electric/natrual gas budget. Really, unless it's a recipe that's at high risk for DMS (most lagers, a low gravity cream or kolsch, or something with a large amount of adjuncts) I wouldn't sweat it. As a propane user, it just isn't worth the extra money on something that I've never had a problem with.

Brew Strong did an episode on DMS. They basically said that all malts will have the things that cause DMS, but certain malts, like Pilsner malt (i believe) contain more of the things that cause DMS and that longer boils (90 min) will remove these precursors.

Short answer is that some malts require longer boils while most do not as long as you are doing the other things like (like chilling your wort to below a certain temp quickly to keep DMS from forming).

I always boil 90 minutes, and have been creating my new recipes with 100 minute boils.

I also NO CHILL my beer so I have special interest in driving off SMM and DMS

Granted I also use all electric, so it is cheap for me to add boil time
