How much difference does Brunwater show if you use the amber malty profile?  That might be more appropriate.

Not a huge difference, huh?  I say flip a coin and see what happens.

not at all. if i dont see any suggestions, i will likely go with amber malty. just wondering if someone has tweaked brewing salts for a dunkle weizen and learned something different.
