Yeah, that's what I meant. But I respect Revvy's opinions, so I'd like to hear more about his experiences.

Use to do 60 min boils with 100% Pils and never had a problem but now I do 90+ min boils for a little extra color and flavor. I also think it may helps the clarity of my beers.

I've had serious DMS with Pils. It was a July brew, I boiled 60, and it took too long to chill. Now I'm super careful about it. I always make sure to boil 90 min AND chill it fast. In my case, I'm sure the problem was just that it took too long to chill. DMS is nasty, so I don't take any chances.

What brand of pils malt? IME, that's what makes the difference. How do you know it was because you took too long to chill? How long was it? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm interested in the details.

Weyerman, about an hour to chill below 90. I think the chill was the problem because I had done other 60 minute boil without DMS but I had chilled them much quicker.
It's just anecdotal evidence from my personal experience but it has motivated me to adjust my process.

Interesting stuff. I've also tended to avoid pils-heavy recipes because I didn't want to do a 90-minute boil. I may reconsider.

Default Add'l question

I know this thread is a bit old now, but I just brewed a Belgian IPA with a fair amount (62.5%) of Belgian pils malt, which included a lengthy hopstand, which precludes the possibility for a quick wort chilling. In this case, would you all suggest a 90-min boil for the pils, given no quick chilling?
Thanks!

I used to always do 90 min boils with pils malt, no questions asked.
Then, after talking to several professional brewers, they all told me that with today's* pils malt, a 90 min boil really isn't necessary.
So for about the last 2 years I've been doing 60 min boils.
No DMS yet. Fingers crossed.

*I'm not exactly sure what is meant by "today's pils malt".

I have also read/heard that with modern malting techniques 90 min boil is no longer necessary with pilsner malts. 60 min is fine. I'e never had issues.
