I will boil down the basic Dusseldorf-style alt recipe debate for 5 gals into two recipes, you chose:

8 lbs. munich dark
0.5 lbs. aromatic (optional)
3-4 oz Salt
WY1007

4 lbs. munich light
4 lbs. pils
0.5-1 lb. aromatic, crystal, etc.
1-2 oz. debittered black
same hops
WY1338

And numerous variations between the two above.

That said, ignore my advice. From 1996-1999. I brewed killer alts. One batch won a 1st in the NHC regionals. Then DWC quit supplying the homebrew market, and my favorite munich malt supplier was gone. Recent alt attempts searching for a suitable munich malt replacement have also (possibly) been confounded by poor WY1338 performance, which has been collaborated by Denny Conn and other posters.

So how's that for a non-answer? :)
