I don't think you have anything to worry about. You'll get a couple more IBU's from your hops with the lower gravity but it shouldn't be anything noticeable. To find the difference, adjust your...

I think what Terek means is on day three crack one to see what the carb level is like. If its not much yet wait it out. If it seems like its over carbed already burp the remaining bottles. On day...

I'd either sub it with 2row and mash a few degrees higher (to keep the OG the same) or sub it out with some white wheat malt. As mentioned above, it is only in there for extra body and head...

The reason you saw the different layers (the trub settling out) in your fridge sample is because you were cold crashing it. Lowering the temperature like that will help all the suspended junk settle...

From what I have read, temperatures above 150 denature beta amylase rather quickly so you will get more unfermentables in your wort. The higher you mash in above that temp, the faster that beta...

I would start with 1/2 liter water with 1/4 dma, boil, cool and pitch.

I would start that yeast out in 500 mL of starter wort then step it up two or even three times incrementally until you get to the 2L volume (which should be fine). I have a lager going right now...

If you want a minimum of base malt I would use 6 row because of it's higher diastolic power. Try something like 2lbs of it per 5lbs of specialty grain. Love to hear how it turns out!
