Are you saying you are raising your mash temp to 180 or just using 180F water to sparge with? Would be cheaper to make a 3 qt. starter from one WL tube than to buy two. What kind of efficiency do you get? I run your grain bill and I would think your OG would be 1.105-1.110.

Most Doppelbocks are made with a high percentage of Munich malt, up to 100%. I recently made one that was 70% Pils and 30% Munich, and I was disappointed with the maltiness of the beer. In the future, I plan to use at least 60% Munich malt. If you are looking to make a Doppelbock that is like Celebrator, Optimator, Primator, etc, consider Munich malt.
