Notes

mash in to target 146F and immediately start refilling HLT with 155F water.
Once water is above HERMS coil, start recirculating until mash reaches 155F, while stirring occasionally.
After mash is at 155F, stop recirc and rest for 15 min.
While resting at 155F, raise HLT water to 175F. After 15 min rest at 155F, start recircing again, even if HLT water is not to 175F, yet. Once mash is at 165F, start lautering.

Note 90 min boil time for DMS reduction due to high % of pilsner malt
