Default Okoberfest/Marzen - Mr. Beer Sized Recipe

For all the Mr. Beer sized brewers out there I want to share this recipe
with you. I brewed it 2 weeks ago and it's still fermenting away

I steeped the grains at 155F for 30 minutes and had to add filtered
water to the boil to make up for the wort that was absorbed by the
grain. I did this after the steeping had been completed and the grain
sack had been remove, just prior to boiling the wort. Once the boil
started I added the hops and waited 20 minutes before adding the DME and
letting it boil for the remaining 10 minutes. Next time I will add the
hops and 1/2 of the DME to the boil at the same time and then add the
remaining 1/2 of the DME 10 minutes prior to flameout.

I used qBrew's default 'Oktoberfest/Marzen' style guidelines to crunch
this recipe's numbers, click the link below for details.
