Lager malts from continental Europe tend to be higher in protein, have less modification, and a lower SNR, which means the malt then requires processing in a step mash program. This is the reason that decoction and heated mash vessels are the dominant brewing systems on the continent.
However, Lager Malt has been optimized for UK-style brewing and works comfortably in both a single-temperature mash regimen.
