I would go to 35-40 IBU for a pilsner. The excess melanoidin will smooth out the flavor abit, but really doesn't do much to the color at 20SRM. In ten gallons it might add around 1 SRM.

Give My Love To Rose - Johnny Cash
I finally got the garden in last weekend. I have Napa grape hybrid, large cherry, early girl, big boy, better boy, Roma, and Tomatillo tomatoes, California Wonder, Cajun Bell, Sweet Cherry hybrid, jalapeno, Sweet Golden Cali Wonder Peppers, Yellow Crookneck Squash, Zucchini, Straight 8 and Bush Pickling Cucumbers, Rhubarb, Hybrid Eggplant, Kentucky Wonder pole beans, Dill, Italian Oregeno, Purple Sage, Thyme, an Parsley. I'm sure I forgot something but this is to the best of my memory.
I started some asparagas root this year but won't get a harvest from that until next year.
Of course my hops but that's a different thread.
I'll post some pics soon.
Yeh volume speaking for a 5 gallon batch, pull the first gallon of wort and reduce down minimally to a half gallon, I reduce to a quart.
