    I had planned on using dark Munich, but they only had light at the brew shop. And the best lager yeast the had is s33. So here is the plan:
    9lbs light Munich
    1.75 lbs light Munich toasted to about 40L.

    Decoction and first wort boiling

    For hops a pinch of citra at beginning of boil (because I don't have anything more appropriate)

    Your thoughts?

    I like the toasting. I've used s33. It made a good enough beer. And I mistreated it.

    152 is spot on for style ...... I like 155 or even 156.....

    So maybe a long rest at 152 and many steps up to mash out.

    I'm not using any crystal, so who knows how it'll work out. I hope for slightly dryer than style, but just slightly

    I don't really care where it lands as long as it's good and I learn a thing or two.

    Most commercial ones seem a bit "thin" on the mouthfeel to me

    Is it worth getting some more appropriate hops for this? I'm using almost none, and just for bittering.

    these are the very old, poorly sealed hops? i don't think that it will matter much. most of the aromatics/flavor compounds should have faded. the boil will take care of the rest.
