I've never been able to open the beer.xml file so I never saw the original strain Yooper used. It's not mentioned in the OP.
If she did use an ale strain I like to know which one.... You have piqued my curiosity.

No, it's most certainly a lager yeast- I used the oktoberfest/marzen strain from White Labs most often, but a Wyeast strain would work as well. I like WLP820 the best, as it's not quite as attenuative as 830. Others might like WLP830 more, for a drier finish in the final beer.

It says Oktoberfest/marzen yeast in the "yeast strain" at the top of the recipe.

As I suspected.....

I made this a few months ago now and just cracked open my first bottle. Absolutely delicious. Very tasty and smooth. VERY pleased with this recipe. Thank you for sharing it with everyone.

What changes would I make for brew in the bag and to change this to an ale..?

Want to create a Marzen style ale for a contest.

Thinking just crush a little finer and a WLP001 CALIFORNIA ALE YEAST

I ask because I have made this before and it was excellent.. Want to keep the character of a Marzen, but higher brew temps and no lagering.

OK answering my own question here sort of.. how about the attached..?

I brewed this Aug 5th, had a couple day D rest, and am in my 2nd week of lagering. I have had it at 33-38 due to temp changes in the keezer (froze a lower keg so I had to raise ) do you think 4 weeks is enough? I am pretty much chomping at the bit since this is my first ever lager and also my favorite beer style, and I kinda want to tap the keg in traditional Ofest time. Am I being stupid? Should I give it another month?

Edit: After doing some searching I find that the rule of thumb is that 1 week per 10 OG points. My og was 1.052, I think, so 5 weeks should cut it right?
