OK, that makes it easier if I don't do the protein rest.
See, this is the problem, I don't know if it's worth the effort or not and from what I can tell on the forum, there are some great brewers who swear by it, and some great brewers who swear at it. Not sure. I guess I just feel like it's one of those things that I should try at least once so I can say I did it. Plus, I have too much time to think about new things to try and not enough time/room/yeast to actually brew anything right now.
I completely agree that you should try it and decide for yourself. I still do one every once in a while to see if my opinion will change. The best way to decide is to do one batch decocted, then another exactly the same but with no decoction. Then do a blind triangle test.
