I get the impression from reading around a bit that 2124 is the most user-friendly.

So looking into it 2124 looks like it would be a good choice. Now any comments on the recipe.

That recipe looks a lot like the one I brewed a few months ago, which was excellent. Except I used about half that much carafa and I thought it was just a tad too much. That recipe will be a on the dark side of the spectrum, you might want to change it depending on what you're looking for.

I'm guessing you have lagering experience and now how to make em nice and clean? that's the real important and difficult part.

I've always gotten diacetyl from the 34/70 strain. Plus, 2308 is more flocculent, so I think it's more user-friendly for me.
