To be honest... It was good, but nothing like Boston Lager. Could be my water chemistry though, been having trouble getting good hop profiles.

How much would it hurt the beer if I skipped the protein rest, and skipped the krausening?

Protein rest would make the brew less cloudy. Krausening makes the brew very smooth and rounded in taste.

Yeah, but I can get a crystal clear beer out of US 2-row without a protein rest... As for the smoothness/roundedness, is that just compared to normal priming? Would there be a benefit to krausening in the keg instead of force carbing?

No that is compared to force carb. You don't have to carb with the krausening. Just add the saved wort let it sit for a couple days and then lager. It will work the same.

After lagering, for a min of 4 weeks force carb it.

Thanks for the recipe impatient. I may try this as my first shot at lagering. How do your attempts at this beer compare to a commercially produced Sam Adams? Do you have any part of the flavor that is different in any way?

Saratoga beer fest today at 3pm!!!!!! Can't wait!!!!

Did a 12.5 gallon batch of this last night for the first time - and first lager. Man the Decoction steps add a lot of time to the brew process! Hope it turns out! I added 3oz of chocolate malt to darken it up a little more. I also used the White Labs WLP830 German Lager Yeast. I will report back in a few months with the results.

Brewed this two weeks ago with wlp 830. This recipe turned me on to decoction; I love the constant involvement on brewday! The hop profile is identical to the original and maybe better based on some recent examples. It is still chugging away at @1.014 but when it gets to FG it will be really close/spot on to Boston Lager. A great way to introduce brewers to lagering and decoction. No regrets here.
