I've made this as a lager and as a lager the roasted barley is too prominent. I used WLP833 German Bock Lager yeast and mashed at 156F.

My comment here is just totaly wrong, not sure I read what I read, but I am going to make this as is.

I want to lager it, should I drop the roasted barley a small amount?

I would try the 300L roasted barley (my preference) or reduce the 500L by 1/3 or 1/2.

What schedule did you use to lager:

I was thinking of 10 days primary, 5 days at 65, and then it has to sit for 90 days at 35.

Mine fermented for 2 weeks @ 48F, 1 week at room temp(63F), 4 weeks @ 29F in a bourbon barrel(too long), 12 weeks in a keg. Most of it lasted 1 year in bottles (took that long to mellow the oak) and I have a few left that are a little over 2 years old that I enjoy on special occasions.

since this will be my first 10 gal batch, I have a couple questions.
has anyone ever split this into two 5 gal batches and use a lager yeast and an ale yeast and compare the two?

I have some harvested lager yeast and an ale yeast to try out. I will have to ferment both at the same temps in my fridge, which is controllable...

I split a 6 gallon batch this past January and used ale yeast in one and lager yeast in the other. I used White Labs Irish Ale Yeast and Saflager Yeast.

I'll definitely be lagering at least one 6 gallon batch this winter. It makes a nice crisp beer. Every one who tried it liked it.
