Default What to Brew Memorial Weekend?

I have not brewed at home since March since i am always heading an hour and half away from home on to my friends 7bbl commercial brewery and helping out.

I have a new temp controller finally (well, bought it 2 months ago) and am itching to use it for a lager type beer.

I am thinking one of the following:

C.A.P. classic american pilsner

German Pilsner

Czech Pilsner

Octoberfest (so its ready in time for sisters wedding in august)

Got to go with an Oktoberfest here. Followed shortly by a Czech Pilsner - another great warm weather beer.

Blasphemy ageing an Octoberfest less than 5 months!

Too late in the season for an Octoberfest go with a nice summer pilsner (I'm doing an American Pilsner)

It's close to summertime, do the CAP. It's one of my favorite styles, it's too bad nobody makes them

I don't understand why the big 3 (BMC) don't make a CAP. It would be the one style they could do well

Agreed! Did mine the end of March for my September wedding.

I voted for a German Pils. Brewing a Dortmunder Export Lager myself on Saturday so it will be ready for the hot weather in August.

I'd go with the Octoberfest. Personally, I'll be doing a smoked porter.
