quick question. Is the 80 minute boil for IBU's/flavor or drive off the likelihood of DMS from the pilsner malt?

I chose that length mostly to drive off dms, but also for color to some degree. You might want to adjust hopping if you choose a 60 min boil.

I just prime with table sugar and let the beer carb/condition for three weeks before drinking

Do you recall your mash temp for this? I am thinking 152F would be appropriate

Also curious why you used 1028 (Lndon Ale yeast) instead of a German or Alt yeast?
