I'd go with M006 GER Munich Malt, or order the dark munich malt elsewhere online.

Yes, just go ahead and use the regular German Munich malt. For the relatively small amount in the recipe the difference in color and flavor will be negligible.

Yup, I'd definitely go with the ordinary Munich.

That said, Stu at Liberty Brewing has Weyermann Dark Munich for sale. I buy all my grains from them, and they're really friendly and helpful. Though it is a fair ways for shipping down to Arrowtown from Welly.

Either way, enjoy your brew. I just did a Bohemian Pilsner yesterday and am excited about trying it out in 8-10 weeks

Regular Munich and substitute UK Dark Crystal for the German Light Crystal.

There really is no substitute for dark Munich, but I also don't know that I would put that malt in a Bo Pils. Vienna or light Munich work fine, and you can use more to get the complexity you are looking for, while not getting the beer too dark.

I also recommend some late addition Saaz. Any Pilsner should have a more complex and assertive hop character, especially a Bo Pils. You don't want hop flavor and aroma like an American IPA, no doubt, but you want some of each.


TL

P.S. If you ever get a chance to add some dark Munich, let us know how that goes. It sounds like a fun beer.

I doubt you get their brews down there, but Stu is one of the guys who runs Yeastie Boys brewery, and he does the brewing supplies as a sideline. Yeastie Boys Pot-Kettle-Black is currently the #1 Australia-NZ beer on ratebeer.com, so he clearly knows his stuff
