Default Extract - OKT Fest Ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Wyeast 1007 German Ale
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.067
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 28
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 14 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 60 @68
Tasting Notes: Nice malt up front with clean noble hop bitterness.

I was looking to brew an extract Oktoberfest, but I don't have lagering equipment. I developed the following recipe to brew a Oktoberfest-style ale using Wyeast 1007. Tasted it over the weekend and it got great reviews, so I figured it was worth posting here. Didn't have the clarity of a true Oktoberfest but that was expected. A good alternative for those of us who don't have room for lagering equipment. Enjoy!

Boil Volume: 3 gallons

Weyermann Caramunich III - 1 lb crushed
Briess Carapils - 8oz crushed

NB Pilsen Malt Syrup 3.15 lbs. (60 min)
NB Munich Malt Syrup 3.15 lbs. (30 min)
Briess Pilsen DME 2 lb (split 60 & 30 min)

German Tettnang 1 oz. (60 min)
Czech*Saaz 1 oz. (10 min)
German Hersbrucker 1 oz (5 min)

Did anyone else ever try this? I think it looks good and I'll put it on my "to brew list"

Good luck, let me know how it comes out. One note, I would change the 30 minute malt additions to 10-15 minutes. No need to boil extract that long.

Oktoberfest is the style I wanted to start with (after a 20 year hiatus from brewing). You've given me a recipe I can use before I assemble my lagering equipment.

I'll let you know how it turns out.
