    Light coloured and malty. Or 2:1 chloride to sulphate.

    Do what Trialben says. If you want to do what Nosy does, adjust your calcium with salts to get to a minimum of 50 ppm calcium. I'd go with closer to 1:1 chloride to sulfate and emphasize noble hops. Then adjust your mash pH using acid - I know, Reinheitsgebot and all - to 5.4.
