I am thinking about something malty, maybe like

45% munich malt
30% pilsner malt
20% vienna malt
5% caramunich II

.5oz Saaz
.25oz Magnum at 90min

.25oz Magnum at 20 min

What yeasts does everyone like to use and at what temperatures for something like this?

Use 1 smack pack of Wyeast 2206 per gallon of wort and ferment at 45°F. No diacetyl rest required.

What does everyone think of the omega bayern lager yeast? The homebrew shop has fresh packs, the wyeasts were not from 2019.
