All the feedback that I'm getting on this one is that it is as good or better than most commercial versions.

You won't be disapointed

I was looking for an Oktoberfest to brew an thought this one looked like a good one to try. If you do too you wont be disappointed, I found the flavor profile to be very similar to Spaten's Oktoberfest. This could possibly be a 5 pint beer, I had an odd day, it was my first day with a new brew rig set-up and had a variety of screw-ups and missed the OG by .03.

I would definitely brew it again
