Here it is after 3 weeks (or so) in the bottle. The taste is out of this world! Malty with some buscuit-y (that's what I'm tasting anyway) undertones and just delicious. This will definitely be made again!!

Really excited for this one. It's mashing as I type (a huge 1.5 gallon batch)and will be one of the last brews before vacation. My older brother is a beer lover and I'm excited for him to try this one.

Thanks for the recipe

I've really wanted to do an Oktoberfest, but I still don't have lagering capacity, so this recipe is a godsend. I have a kit that was given to me for Father's Day that will go first, but this will be next.

BierMuncher, how many volumes of CO2 do you carb this to? I saw your comments mentioning the perfect carbonation level, and I'd like to hit that.

Thanks!

How many packets of 04 yeast do you recommend using for a 5 gallon batch? I think Mrmalty recommends 2. Is that necessary?
I assume the base malt is pilsner, gonna buy it unless someone tells me different.

According to the recipe on post #1, it's german pilsner. However, Vienna malt and Munich (bot in this recipe) are technically base malts, as well.

I guess it is the 2-row listed in it that confused me. I've read all 35 pages on this thread. I havent read about anyone using two packets of dry yeast, although Mrmalty calls for it. Anyone know if 1 is adequate?
Cant wait to brew this. I am brewing AG on post #1

Pilsner is just a type of 2 row. If no specific kind is given you can assume plain 2 row/base malt. This recipe specifies pilsner, so that's what you use.

1 packet of dry yeast is typically enough for a 5 gallon batch. If doing a larger batch (like the 11 gallons listed on page 1), you'd need a second packet.
