Something to Note About the pH
I've found multiple instances where people have reported Rahr malts to have a pH that is a 'couple of tenths' lower than other base malts from different maltsters. This would mean that a mash made with Rahr malt might come in at 5.2 (cooled) while a Briess mash might come in at 5.4 (cooled).

If you use Bru'n Water to predict mash pH, the creator (Martin Brungard) says to increase the color of the malt by about 3 Lovibond to make up for this difference.

Not a bad thing as long as you expect it, I was glad that I found this out before using it!

I've heard some pilsner malts need a 90min boil to prevent DMS issues. Do you recommend it for this malt or will I be ok with 60?
A shopper on Nov 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've always been just fine with a 60 minute boil, DMS is usually a corn-related issue in my experience. Also, you can probably skip the protein rest and get by just fine too, it'll shorten your mash a lot.
