2. You should point out that this is a single-step infusion mash and
thus requires well-modified malt (Pale malt). Using less-modified
malt (such as Lager malt) would require a protein rest.

Well, I used to believe this, but now I wonder. According to many
sources, most commercial breweries use a single-step infusion. I've
done this myself, and have had no problems at all. No haze, no excessive
trub, nothing.
