Altbier, again

I decided to brew another Dusseldorf Altbier based on judging results from the Brew Hut Homebrew Competition.  My ALTer Ego won a Silver medal and was noted that it needed more malt aroma and flavor as well as requiring German Noble hops.  I did use Hallertau, but the judges thought they were a Nor-Cal variety.  So, I tweaked the maltbill and will use German Spaltz hops, which are the true variety normally used for Altbier.  Since I increased the flavor profile of the maltbill, I also increased the IBU's from 36 to 40.  I'm mashing as we speak and the results will follow!
