I have not brewed this yet. Would like to get some opinions on the combination of Tettanng and Hallertauer. Also thoughts on WLP029 or to use WLP036. Trying to design an Oktoberfest style ale that has a very clean bright finish. Appreciate the input! Cheers!!

Maybe add honey..? I am currently doing a Marzen (Lager style) and added 2 lbs of honey to the recipe for 2 reasons.

1) For a hint of honey to the final product

2) primarily to boost OG and ABV

It defiantly did the first.. (Recipe OG was 1.052, I ended up at 1.062 and had an extra half gallon in the batch (At 5 gal it was 1.075))

Let you know how it goes.
