Anybody have a favorite AG altbier recipe they wouldn't mind sharing?

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

could I use soy sauce as a substitute? might help with the color and add complexity.
yes, I know, he meant spalt
