I really injoy Sam Adams Boston Lager.  I do not and the cooling equipment to
brew lagers yet and was wondering if I clone the recipie, could i use a steam
yeast to replicate the beer?  Would it change the properties of the batch?  And
how?

Ever had Anchor Steam?  It'll probably taste sort of like a cross
between Anchor Steam and SABL.  Think Anchor Steam, but with more
assertive hop aroma, from Continental "noble" hops (Hallertau and
Tettnang) instead of Northern Brewer.  Or think SABL, with some ale-like
fermentation byproducts (esters), from the warm fermentation.

I place my carboy/6.5 gallon fermentor in a 20 gallon utility tub ($5 at
Kmart) filled with water.  I keep the water cool by alternating frozen water
bottles.  It doesn't require much effort.
