I brewed this Saturday 8/14/10 used Notty as the temps here in east Chula vista (San Diego) are a little on the warm side. Had 1.060 into the fermenter, Beersmith gave me 67% eff.
Looks to be a great beer. Like they say, "the waiting is the hardest part"!
Danke Ed!!

I'm brewing this today with Wyeast Kolsch II 2575. I plan on fermenting relatively cool...55-60F. I'll let y'all know how it turns out.

It's about that time of year, so I just wanted to endorse this recipe! Last year, I made this exactly, with the Kolsch yeast, and it was awesome.... Really enjoyable, easy drinking, and just a real good Ofest.

This year, I'm doing the same recipe, but I am lagering it with WLP820 Oktoberfest Lager, due to actually having a fridge to do it in. It'll be a relatively quick lagering, only 5 weeks, but here's hoping it's as good (or better) than last year's!

Transfer to the keg about an hour ago. Right at the FG... Tasted awesome, can't wait for this to carb and be ready to drink!

I sampled my first opening of EdWort's Oktoberfest Ale this weekend. WOW, WOW, WOW. I did a taste comparison with several other commercial Octoberfests and found that EdWort's recipe stood up nicely with all of them. It was my favorite of what I compared it to. (Sam Adams Octoberfest, Spaten Octoberfest, Bells Fest Bier, Flying Dog, and Gordon Biersch Fest Bier.)

Way to go EdWort!!!!

I have made your ApfelWein, Haus Pale Ale, and now the Oktoberfest Ale. They have all been spectacular.

Do you sell a recipe book? I think I might just start brewing everything you publish!

Cheers to EdWort and his wonderful quaffs!

I am forcing myself not to try it until 9/11/10, which is exactly 4 weeks in the keg. Man is that hard!
