500g Cara Munich
250g Crystal 80

No worries, what brewing system are you using?
umm kind of wondering what the 30min add is for, its not really going to add anything except more bitterness, which in my opinion is kind of a waste of hops, for a no chill to recreate it you'd probably put it in at 10mins instead. Though I'll wait to see what you were wanting from it.

Was looking at a Festbier for an Octoberfest beer
I can adjust if you think its a good thing and up the 60 min addition as a single hop addition to get the bitterness around the 25 to 30 IBU mark

ok I'd change it too 50g at 60mins thats with tettnanger being about 4.5%AA. and chuck in 10g at 5mins. No steep just cube. Probably benefit from a dry hop too maybe 30-60g but thats optional , Cheers mate!
