I'm building a starter for a 15 gallon batch right now in preparation of 15 gallons of Octoberfest Ale.

Ed, is there anything you do to your water for lighter beers like this?

I'm in the Austin area too and our water (well) is just so ridiculously hard. It's been fantastic for the higher gravity brews, but I have still yet to make a great lightish beer and I'm starting to wonder if it's just the water.

I have LCRA water and it works fine for me. If I had really hard water I would go half RO water from the Glacier Dispenser at HEB and half well water. Give that a try.

I've made my Kolsch with rain water before and it came out great, but a different beer all together. The soft water affects the hop utilization, so it was not as herb (bitter) as my normal Kolsch.

Going to be brewing a slight variation of this this weekend. Looking forward to it but won't be able to keep it that cold (probably ~72 through out the whole process). What affect will that have on the beer? Just cloudier?

I just ordered this recipe from Brewmaster's Warehouse.. There appears to be a typo over there, as it uses 2-row pale malt instead of pilsner. I fixed mine to use Briess pilsner instead.

This was my understanding also, but both the original recipe and the recipe on BMW explicitly state a 60 minute boil. Is there a reason for that?

Thanks,
