Cool. Let me know how it turns out. I am really not using the best yeast strain for a dry pils (WL 833), but I have a fresh slurry of it from my last helles which I kegged yesterday. Surprisingly, the helles dried out to 1.005 too. Last Helles I brewed with 86% pils/14% kolsch malt finished at 1.012 with WY 2308 mashed at 150. I used the exact same recipe and mashed at 149F to dry it out a tad more. The only swap was the 833 strain which I have always thought was a bit less attenuative. Apparently it isn't.
It'll be good anyway with 833, but you could always bump the sulfate up a tad. Yeah, looking forward to this one!
