how light were you going for? that much munich isnt really light. i dont know if you were going for a helles style or something like that, but in that case i would have flipped the pils and munich amounts. why the 90 min boil? and is that a type with the 2 citra additions at 30 min? should be fairly tasty regardless.

I went as light as I'm probably going to go with a beer, and the only reason is my uncle requested a lighter beer than I would usually doo. I've been experimenting with dubble lagers and chocolate beers. so this is a step away from that. not sure what you mean about the 90 min. boil, I doo this with all my beers. I'm not going for any certain style, just a good lighter beer. with the hops selection I'm expecting a citrus, grapefruit, lemony zest flavor. I'm brewing this today so I will keep posted on the progress.
