Default Who can decipher a malt analysis sheet?

I got a bag of Bestmalz pilsner malt and am trying to find out if it's highly modified or not? Or simply put, should I do a step mash with this grain?

Here's the sheet

With a Kolbach of about 40 you are actually right on the boarderline, so you don't need one (but a short one wouldn't hurt).

short one = protein rest

With my limited experience, I'd say that's ok but no longer or hotter. I've used pilsner malt with a Kolbach of 38.4 without a protein rest and the Pilsner and Kolsch from that bag never really got crystal clear, even with finnings (gelatin in one and biofine in the other). A Dort brewed with pilsner that had a Kolbach of 40.7 with no protein rest was excellent and crystal clear.
