Default decoction, acid rest, and acid malt

Brewing a pilsner. I'm using Weyerman's floor malted bohemian pilsner malt which is slightly under modified. I was thinking about using a decoction mash for 2 reasons: 1) never done it and I have all Sunday to myself and 2) might help with the conversion.

I've already added 5 oz of acid malt to the 10lbs of base malt for pH reasons. That said, should I skip the acid rest and jump right to the protein rest?

In the future, if I do an acid rest, would I need to still add the acid malt?

Thoughts?
