Stopped by my nearest brew shop today ...took along the True Brew Oktoberfest kit that a friend had purchased and asked the owner of the store to help modify it for something that is more inline with my likes....so after adding 2lbs of roasted grains and chocolate malt adding some different hops and DME and upgrading the yeast to US-205 the brew was completed yesterday and the airlock is hard at work!!!! here is a breakdown

60 minute boil
5 gallon batch size
2.5 gall boil
grains steeped @ 160 degrees for 20 minutes

grains:

Specialty mix from store (3 separate grains and malts) 2lbs
lovibond crushed grain from kit 8oz

LME:

Muntons Malt Extract (amber) from kit 3.3lbs

DME:

Briess Sparkling Amber (added) 1lbs

Hops:
