I have two goals with this next brew 1) to make something like an Oktoberfest and 2) to use some ingredients I already have, which I recognize will take it somewhat away from true Oktoberfest style. I like it a bit hoppier than style too, so there's that. Here goes:
6.6lbs Munich LME
2.2lbs light DME
For mini mash:
8oz Crystal 120 (I already have this)
8oz Vienna (have this too)
1oz Tettnang at 60
1oz Hallertau at 30
1oz Hallertau at 5
I have some US-05 that I'm very comfortable with, but am interested in trying Saflager 34/70 for what would be my first lager after 20ish brews. I'm undecided on the yeast.
Any suggestions, corrections, additions, subtractions, etc.? The only things I'm stuck on are the mini-mash/steeping grains and the desire to make something similar to an Oktoberfest. I don't really care if it's accurate to style or not, as long as it's good.
