If you are certain you want to have your giant schnauzer neutered, the usual recommendation is no earlier than 2 years old. The dog should be physically and mentally mature before considering the operation. An article in the Vet Times states:

For heavier animals, it recommended waiting until the animal is at least 11 months old, and for males belonging to giant breeds it may be necessary to delay for a further year.
