Notes
Light American Lager, brewed with Ale yeast.

The results are in on this beer! My advice – go with the Wyeast 1272 American Ale II. The Safale US-05 tastes watered down and thin compared to the American Ale II. We did a little tasting party with these two. Everybody (novice and experienced drinkers alike), resoundingly preferred the batch fermented with American Ale II. Damn this is a great beer!

Brilliant approach, hope the beer tastes good.  You could try modifying the mash temperature cycle.  suggest half time at 62 centigrade half time at 68 centigrade
