Planning to do a Maibock but then it hit me that I have only ever had Glissade from Sierra Nevada and I have no idea as to how minerally or how soft they actually taste or if sulfates are even appropriate in this style.

Is shooting for
50-Calcium
5-Magnesium
0-Sodium
46-Chloride
20-Sulfate
(and some lactic to lower the pH if needed)

sound like it would stand up ok for a Maibock?

Maibock is a light colored lager so you should be OK with those numbers although I would bump up the Ca+ just a bit (75ppm) with additional Calcium Chloride. Sulphates should be very low, so I would not add any gypsum.
