Dusseldorf Altbier, "ALT"er Ego

Good morning!  My brew day started at 6:00 a.m.  My mash is almost finished.  Mashed in at 161 to reach a mash temp of 148 for 90 minutes.  Smells amazing!  Nothing like the smell of mash in the morning!
At the boil I will add my hops in late additions to retain smoothness.  I will be using German Magnum for bittering and Hallertau for flavor.   
My starting gravity is projected at 1.052.  Actual is 1.046.  Deep amber/copper/light brown color. 
I'm looking forward to tasting this brew!
Cheers!
