Default Oktoberfest.. NAILED IT!

Cracked open my first bottle of Oktoberfest and it's wonderful!

My third brew overall and the first one that I really hit all my marks on. Very happy brewer here....

So what to brew next...???

I got into homebrewing with an Oktoberfest in mind, but timing of my birthday/receipt of my gifts (ie. brewing paraphernalia) prohibited it. (I know I could brew anything anytime, but if rather have an Oktoberfest come into its own in September as is tradition.)

Anyway, my question. If the recipe is good, would you share it? Especially if it is extract-based. Not ready to get into AG yet, but even if the recipe is all grain, post it for others (and me on the chance I am ready for AG by next July-ish). Thanks and congrats on a successful brew!

Why would anyone not share a recipe with other homebrewers??

I don't know but sometimes you'll find a homebrewer that won't. It's particularly ridiculous when they ask for help with a flaw in the beer but refuse to give the recipe. It's like going to the doctor and telling them you have a problem but not telling them what it is or how it happened.

I think you're ready for a turbid mash now!

But seriously...good for you. My first wild success was a brown ale. I still make it 3 years later.

Not sure, but considering I can't wrestle the OP into submission via a forum, I figured I would be courteous and ask as opposed to demanding. If he has reasons, so be it. I can likely find about a million and six Oktoberfest recipes via a google search, but I figured (as you probably did) that if he was proud of his recipe he may be proud to share.

I know what happens when I ASS.U.ME.

Absolutely. And I wasn't trying to say that he wasn't going to share; I guess I've just never ran into a person who wasnt willing to share a recipe before. Especially since most of the time they've received it from somewhere else. And the people who don't want to share are the ones who should be punched in the nose anyway right!?

Agreed. I probably misunderstood your original post after I asked for the recipe. You seemed to be commenting that asking was the wrong approach (guessing now that was not your meaning).

I figured there were two ways to let OP know that I wanted the recipe - asking him for it or demanding it. Asking seemed the more diplomatic approach. Again, I probably misunderstood your meaning which is easy to do on a forum like this.
