Comments From the Brewer:
As this is lager yeast at cold temperatures the pitching rate for the yeast is double so you will definitely need a starter or more yeast vials. If possible at the end of the fermentation period slowly increase the temperature 1 degree each day. This will help to clean up the diacetyl off flavors.
