Have you brewed this recipe previously? If so, how'd it turn out?

Yes I have brewed it three times and each time it came out great. I wish that it had more body, but was well with-in style. I am considering adjusting the scarification steps to less time (15 minutes) at 146 and more time 30 minutes at higher temp 158 for the second rest. But it is good enough I have started working it into my regular rotation. I have made additional notes about the conditioning of the beer which helped to improve the second batch over the first. The one thing you do not want to change in this recipe is the yeast. To get the appropriate flavor profile Wyeast 1007 is strongly recommended, but WLP036 could also work. The flavor profile does not seem to be as prevalent with the WLP yeast as it is with the Wyeast 1007.

I'm wondering about WL029 German ale/kolsh yeast,which I have two batches worth of in the fridge. It gave a nice little crispness to my dark hybrid lager I brewed with it. gotta play around with this decotion mashing stuff. I saw a guy do it on youtube that's German. Still don't get all the details,but I'd like to.
Also,since I currently do PB/PM BIAB in my 5G BK/MT,I'd replace 3lbs of the pilsner 2-row with a 3lb bag of plain extra light DME. Worked well in my light hybrid lager recipes for that light color. Darkening is easy with some crystal & chocolate malts I've used so far. Def like to try this,my dad's side being from upper bavaria...
