Yes, too funny. I didn't intend this.

I think crystal in a Schwarzbier is fine. I use it in mine.

Would you use C-60 or Caramunich II or III?

I was just thinking the same thing since I have 40L Caramunich to hand. How about;

5lbs Munich
4lbs Pilsen
4oz each of Caramunich, BlackPrinz and Midnight Wheat

Puts me at 1.051 OG, & 25 SRM

Hopping schedule remains untouched.

I agree that JZ's Schwarzbier is a bit too toasty for my taste, though overall the beer has been well received as a porter brewed with lager yeast - kind of a milder Baltic Porter, I would guess.  I think the recipe posted above (as adjusted) would be great.
