Well, it would help to know which Sam Adams recipe that is before we can say if it's a good approximation. That being said, it looks like a decent recipe and I think it's the Boston Lager, but I could be wrong.

EDIT: On second thought, it looks a bit too hoppy to be Boston Lager.

My mistake, It is suppose to be the boston lager. If this helps, anything I should change?

I dunno, that lager's got a bit of hop character to it, so this could be pretty close- this would make a good beer, if not an exact clone.

If you can keep it at or just below 55 it may(probably will) take longer than 10 days to be ready. If you're using lager yeast you should also store it cold(33-35) for at least 3-4 weeks after primary to give the yeast time to clean it up for that crisp lager flavor. If you don't have the ability to lager, use a clean ale yeast like US-05 or Nottingham and you'll have a nice Boston Ale

No.

Don't plan on lagering without a fridge, it's too hard to get the temperatures low consistently.

Don't use a lager yeast if you can't get your temps down to near freezing for the aging process.

Is it possible to make this into an Ale by just changing the yeast? I don't have the resources for a lager but looks like a great recipe.

Would I also need to change the hops?
