What is the maximum percentage of pilsner malt you would include in a grist bill before you would consider a 90 minute boil necessary to reduce DMS.

I agree with Denny- I never do a 90 minute boil with Pils malt and never had issues with DMS

That is cool. I typically avoid pils just to keep my brewday shorter. But I love pils malt. This is good news.

I brewed an IPA last night with a grist of 50% MO and 50% Pils. After reading these responses, I opted for a 60 minute boil. I'll report back. Thanks!

A hard boil and chilling the wort quickly will eliminate most of the need for a 90 min boil. Though I still do them for beers with a majority of pils malt.

I've done 80-85% pils grainbills coupled with 40 minute boils and zero DMS. Or maybe I'm incapable or smelling/tasting DMS and everyone who drinks my beer loves that DMS taste hehe

If you're that worried and unsure about it, why not use a portion of Pilsener DME and fill in the rest of the grist with the other malts?

+1,000 If it has pils it gets a 90.

I think you misunderstood what Denny posted. He said he DOES NOT find a 90 minute boil necessary with pils malt
