I am probably going to brew a Berliner Weisse somewhere in the future, and I wanted to know if people usually do a 90 minute boil to rid the beer of DMS, as with other beers that contain Pilsner malt. Doesn't seem like people tend to do this, but then do their beers come out too sulfury? Seems like the low gravity and bugs might help eliminate/mask sulfury flavors.

Read my homebrew blog!
Fermenting: None, sadly
Aging/Conditioning: Sea Symphony Strong Ale
On tap: Limerick Session Stout, Junior/Senior Amarillo RyePA, Ralph Partigyle Bitter, Saison de Potiron

Relax, don't worry, have a homebrew.

I don't boil my Berliners, and I've never had an issue with DMS. Time and a warm fermentation drive it off much better than in a lager. I assume the bugs also help. Good luck.
