2 weeks in the bottle, tastes great. Excellent aroma, perfect maltiness. Thanks for the recipe.

Nice to hear! I added 4 oz of chocolate malt to my Belgian - it imparted more of a stoutish flavor and darker color than I thought it would. I'm glad I didn't use any more than that! I just bottled it, freeing up the primary bucket. I left it in the primary the whole time - who needs a stinkin' secondary?

Now I'm debating giving this one a go or going for a Great Lakes Christmas Ale clone. Hrm.

Brewed this recipe today, my first partial mash so I'm pretty excited.

The nerve!!!

Ha. I'm doing something similar, but mine would be "inconsiderate Greek-Scotch-Irish bloke." Otherwise, an "Oktoberfest Style Ale" is the first beer I ever brewed several years ago. I liked it quite a lot, so now that I know what I'm doing more than I did then, I'm trying again. Different recipe, but similar enough.

I brewed this a couple of months ago at half scale. Four weeks in the bottle and it tastes wonderful. I'll brew it again, with a little tweaking (e.g. exchange the pale malt for more Munich), and try Wyeast 2112 California Lager to make it less ale-like. Good recipe.
