This beer get's better the longer it's in the keg...unfortunately the keg also has less volume as this occurs

Really glad I brewed this. If anyone's bottle conditioned this, have you noticed any tasting differences vs. force carbed in keg? I plan to serve some of this at our block party on the 13th but the keg will likely be dry by then. hiccup

just brewed my first attempt at this, 5 gallon batch. hit 83% efficiency in my newly insulated mash tun which was surprising. OG was 1.050 going into the carboy, looking forward to this.

Going to try this out in time for deer camp. Only change is using Wyeast's 1968 London ESB yeast. Here goes nothing!

Default Secondary stuck fermentation


Sorry for not checking more than the first dozen or so pages, but this thread is pretty big.

I racked this to the secondary and since haven't seen or measured any activity. Anyone else have this problem?

Secondary is really not necessary and usually really used to clear the beer. If you did not move the beer too early to secondary, you really should not see any activity.

By the end of my 60Min mash temps had dropped another 3 or 4 degrees ending at around 154. So I coutinued as usual and didnt think much of it. I finshed everything then pitched my yeast I used S-04. Three days later all fermentation has stoped and was at a gravity of 1.030. Thinking it was a stuck fermenation I tryed to rouse the yeast and raise temps to about 70 was at the low 60's. Three days later still no signs or fermentation and gravity is still at 1.030. Could this be a product of the high mash temps or should I go ahead and pitch some more yeast. I also heard that adding some suger could get my yeast going again.
So I bottled this today and after just one teaspoon of the enzyme it got me all the way down to 1.013. I was looking for this to end up right around there so everything went well. Thanks for all the help.

I've nearly killed a keg plus some bottles of this. Great recipe. Mine dried out to around 1.010 but I still think it tastes great. I had a local brewery's Marzen the other day and it tasted almost spot-on for mine.

FWIW I used all Munich in place of Vienna, which I didn't have.

3 weeks in the primary and now it's in the keg. Ended up at 1.020 and the sample tasted good. Can't wait to try in 2 weeks on tap!

Brewed this about 3 weeks ago. straight to the keg, 40 psi overnight. And it's amazing. great head, perfect lacing, huge flavor, well balanced, caramelly (according to my roommate) and everything an octoberfest should be, even though I cheated with the -05. finished right at 1.020, and the beer is perfect. If you're lazy or can't do lagers, this is a great fall seasonal. Next year I might even try to brew it on time for real octoberfest time. Excited to drink it for the rest of the fall and into the winter.

Thanks BM. your recipes are always perfect. Whenever I want to try a new style, I go straight to your recipe dropdown. Thanks!!
