This was my second Oktoberfest, my first was okay, but I think this batch will be much better. I’m still aging now in bottles. I would have kegged it, but I only have two 5 gal kegs and they were both committed. This brew took a very long time to finish fermentation 43 days from brew day to bottle day. Even with the low temp it stayed active; I keep extending the secondary time frame. I will continue to age this brew cold for 60 or so more days. From what I can tell however it will be smooth. Thanks

I brewed this and had to slightly change the recipe due to lack of some of the grains, and had to use White Labs #WLP820. This turned out as an exceptional brew!

True to form


My 2nd AG brew of 36L in a SS container. OG1058 to FG1014. Lagered 32 days at low 10-12Deg C then again in bottles at 22Deg C for 2 weeks. Fellow beermakers confirmed it as an exceptional smooth drop with no faults.

I have made this recipe 3 times and turned out great each time. Used Saflager 34/70 instead of liquid yeast.
