Brewed this a month ago with a friend. I bottled mine last week, he racked his to secondary. I saw his last night, and it is still very cloudy. Is that unusual after a month? Seems like most of the posts here say that at least the finished product is clear.

Can depend on a few things, all grain or extract? What yeast did you use? How long ago did he rack his?

Overall in my experience when I bottle, my beer is very clear after carbing and then 2-4 weeks in the fridge. There aren't any adjuncts in this that would normally make a beer cloudy so it should be pretty clear.

We did all grain, exactly as the recipe said with S-04. He racked his a week ago, after 3 weeks in primary, the same day I bottled mine. My bottles are also cloudy, but after a week in bottles that's to be expected.

Biab? calcium level? boil kettle ph? FG?, cooling method, sediment stirred up when racking. These are suspects for cloudy beer.

A lengthy chill will cure most chill haze issues.

BM, I brewed this bout 7 weeks ago, although I did change your recipe just bit as my mill efficiency is high and I wanted to try a different yeast.
Finally week 3 arrived after bottling...so carbing is complete. I drank of glass of this side by side with a Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Man...it's close! The SA finished dry and crisp...it is a lager. Your recipe was just a bit sweeter(I mashed at 154*) while the hops are there then gone as quick as you notice them.
Excellent recipe BM....well done.

I brewed this on 9/23, checked it last night and it's already at 1.015 and looked like it was still active. I used Wyeast 2565 Kolsch with a 2 L starter and have kept it in the mid 60's for first 3 days then let rise up to 72. Tasted GREAT, very bready and malty just a good Oktoberfest should! I will take another reading on Friday or Saturday and keg it, and let it chill/carb until our Oktoberfest party on 10/25! Also bringing a keg of Kolsch and a keg of Dunkelwiezen. Here's the recipe I used:

Brewing Steps: OktoberFAST Ale
Type: All Grain Date: 09/23/2013
Batch Size (fermenter): 5.25 gal
Boil Size: 7.5 gal
Boil Time: 60 min Equipment: My Brutus 10 - 5 Gallon batch
Final Bottling Volume: 5.00 gal Brewhouse Efficiency: 68.00

Mash Ingredients
4 lbs 4.0 oz Pilsner (2 Row) Ger
2 lbs 8.0 oz Vienna Malt
2 lbs Munich Malt
1 lbs Aromatic Malt
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L
8.0 oz Carapils (Briess)
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.60 %] - Boil 60.0 min
0.50 oz Tettnang [4.60 %] - Boil 45.0 min
0.50 oz Tettnang [6.10 %] - Boil 30.0 min
Wyeast 2565 Kolsch
OG: 1.052


Was weird I bought 2 packs of Tettnang and one was 4.6% alpha and the other 6.1 so I adjusted.

Thanks for the great recipe!
