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!!
