Default Need some input on my second lager (for a celiak gf)

I'll be attempting my second lager. First one went in the drain.

I'm brewing this and adding clarity ferm, and hope my GF can drink it. Since she's a celiak, she's used to Sol/Corona type of beers, an IPA i made her had "too much taste". For my own sake I also want it to be a single hop with a new (for me) hop.

11,02 lb Pilsnermalt Best Malz (1,5 SRM) Grain 1 98,2 %
0,21 lb Carahell (25,0 SRM) Grain 2 1,8 %
0,81 oz Palisade [7,50 %] - Boil 60,0 min Hop 3 19,3 IBUs
0,53 oz Palisade [7,50 %] - Boil 30,0 min Hop 4 9,7 IBUs
0,53 oz Palisade [7,50 %] - Boil 15,0 min Hop 5 6,2 IBUs
0,29 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10,0 mins) Fining 6 -
3,0 pkg Saflager Lager (DCL/Fermentis #W-34/70) [50,28 ml]

I'm unsure of the mash schedule for this, this is my main concern which I need some help with. I can step mash and steps take from 15-30 minutes (for example 150-170 takes approx 15 minutes).

Also, I have some Munich 1&2, and caramunich 2&3 I could add to this, if it would make a positive difference. I have 7 other grains too, but I think the munich is more in style than the others, if anything should be added.

Since this is my first "real" attempt for a lager, I'll save the 830 I also have on hand, so the 34/70 is the yeast I'll use. Full control of ferm temps.

I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but do you mean your girlfriend has celiac disease? If so there is a gluten free section here in the forums where people there could probably give you some good advice

Yes, that's correct. I posted it here since I'll add clarity ferm, just to see If she can drink it. So the recipe is "normal".

Not familiar with clarity ferm. I like decoctions for lagers. Aim for 120F for dough in. Pull 3/4 of your grain leaving as much fluid as possible and boil it for 10-20 minutes and then return it back to the mash tun. That should bring you up to the 140's. Let that rest for 45-60 minutes and then pull grain and boil again. Return to the mash tun and you should be in the mid 150's. Rest there for 15-30 minutes and then take your first runnings and sparge as usual.

I've done several single infusion mashes for my lagers. The key, to me is the temperature. I would suggest hitting 149-150 degrees for 90 minutes, then mash out at 168 for 10 minutes.
I would stick to a single infusion and explore from there.
Hope this helps

This sounds like a good idea. How about the hop schedule? I took a "standard" lager recipe and removed some of the early hops, and added more late hops to compensate for higher AAs in Palisade. Will it maybe get to hoppy for a lager?

Nobody with some thoughts on the hops?

She only tasted my brew once, and not since. I'd really want her say that atleast "This is not so bad actually".

Personally, I would do the hops schedule like 60, 15, 10.

I'm brewing this right now and I actually already settled on the 60 30 15 with Perle for bittering and saaz for the rest.
