I like the looks of what you've got, though that's a lot of munich for my tastes for this style.

I've made Tasty McDole's Dortmunder and it was freakin' awesome.  We just kicked it this past weekend and my wife is already bugging me to do another batch.  Will probably do a 10 gallon batch this time.  Don't have the recipe at the moment, but will find it later if you want it.

Thanks for the input guys.  I'm trying to stay away from the Cara pils/foam malts and get body from mash temps instead.  I have used this Munich malt in large amounts in O-fests and in Belgian styles as well.  It does impart nice maltiness to the flavor, but is not kilned as dark as the other Munich malts available and leaves a pretty crisp finish when used in conjunction with a good pils malt ( I use MFB almost exclusively).  I like the melanoiden idea,  I have some on hand and may change the Munch/pils mix and add some of that instead.  My well water is very minerally already, so that souldn't be a problem.  BTW, I did down a couple of DABs last night, reminds me of a super Helles, sort of. ;D  Been a while since I've had this style.

I know where you're coming from, as I used to have the same aversion to dextrine malts, but a year or 2 ago after crabber came back from the Great Lakes tour having seen the recipe for their Dortmunder Gold (10% dextrine malt) I decided to give it a try and was glad I did (though I did ~8%) - it really did bring the missing link to my recipe.

YMMV.

Hard to describe - I'll try to articulate it, but doubt I will do it justice.  Even though carapils=carafoam=dextrine malt, carafoam in particular seems to contribute a light sweetness and toastiness that complements well with the candy and hay-like character of the Best pils malt (Best, and only Best).  It also seems to deepen the gold color versus the more straw like color when I made it with just pils and munich.   It also seems smoother, but that might be psychological. Of course, I didn't do a side-by-side but I really didn't need to - once I made that change, it sort of 'clicked'.  

Seriously, one of my closest brewing friends is a relocated Clevelander and he occasionally brings back some GLBC beers when he travels back home - we've had them together, and can't decide which is which.  

Would decoction replace some of the dextrine malt?

I don't think so - certainly it would replace the melanoiden malt, but I don't think the carafoam - one, because at 8-9% you can definitely get some flavor contribution from it, and two, because my pro buddy uses carafoam frequently and he brews on a triple decoction 15bbl system, so I'm assuming if decoction replaced, why would he use it?

Can't wait - after my vienna this weekend, the next brew in line is the dort - I usually brew it at least 2, if not 3 times a year.  The last keg blew back in October, so I'm jonesing.

here's a pic - its rather crappy since it was from before I got my Rebel and started learning about photography, but you can at least see the deep gold color:

yeah - I have it listed on the link, I just checked.

I know, you don't like 830, IIRC, but that's my house lager yeast and I love it.

I must say it looks right on, Paul.  I am going to use W34/70 slurry, which I believe is the same as 830.  I have used dextrine malt in continental lagers (a la Stella clone) and I liked what it did for it at ~ 5% of grist.  Alas I am fresh out of it so I'll have to stop by the LHBS to pick some up.  I do believe they have Carafoam there.
