Adding minerals to water is reinheitsgebot compliant. Many German breweries do that and other water adjustments, but they often perform that addition outside the brewhouse. Don't fret about this.

With respect to your recipe, I find that Alt comes out too malty and rich with that high a percentage of munich malt. Somewhere less than 50% munich tends to be more balanced and drinkable.
Awesome thanks for the info. What would you recommend as a base malt for the Alt?

Hello everyone!  This is my first post on here.  I recently dove head first into home brewing.  I should say that I've brewed extracts several years ago, and even switched to partial grain and now have fully committed to full grain brewing.  I don't have all of my own equipment yet, but my buddy has one hell of a set-up!  We are brewing 5.5 gallon batches and kegging to soda kegs.  We fly-sparge in a 10 gal water cooler with a false bottom.  Okay, so now that the background is done, I've brewed several clones and have finally decided to try my hand at recipe creation.  I've decided to try my first altbier and would love some feedback from you guys.  Anything that stands out to you as good / bad, please let me know your thoughts/opinions.  Thanks!
