I'm brewing one tomorrow but I'm almost 100% sure it won't last until mid-September. I'll brew another in early June or so for fall (I call this one the Marzen and the second one the Ofest). My recipe is very similar to yours except I'm using a pound of dark munich instead of cara/crystal. And I just got some Mittlefreuh yesterday.
No decoction this time though.
Two brews in one day is enough.
EDIT: man I'd love to live in your town! Have family there and love the place.
