I knew that your name looked familiar!  Once I get a brewpot with a 
spigot on the bottom, I'm going to take another crack at it.  My current 
method of ladling mash into the lauter tun is fine for ales, but 
pilsners are too delicate for such maltreatment.  Quackie Doodle (recipe 
formulated from your guidelines) turned out to be drinkable, but far less 
than dandy.

And the rumors regarding soybean usage were just that.  Makes sense to me.
