I left mine in the primary for 4 weeks. Transferred to secondary and lagered for 7 weeks. It lasted 3 months in the kegs before it was gone.

I hope to brew this for the Big Brew day. What yeast from my inventory do you think would work best:
Safale 05
WLP 013
WLP 802
Or WLP 820?

820 (or 802) if you can ferment cold. I'm brewing this tomorrow morning and I'm using Wyeast's Octoberfest blend. Someone else here recommended that and I thought it was a good idea.

I may use the 820. Was planning on making an Oktoberfest, this should be out of the primary in time to harvest the yeast.

My understanding of the 820 is that it's very slow.

Brewed the Cherry Beech Smoke Beer this past Saturday for the Big Brew Day. First time brewing outside. Went very well - overshot my gravity by a few points. Carted the carboy home and pitched my WLP820 2 liter starter. Took 24 hours for visible activity, but she's going nicely now at 52ºF.

I changed the bittering hops to 1/2 oz Newport and used 3 lbs of the beechwood smoked malt.

Update from my Big Brew Day of this beer. OG 5/3/14 was 1.050. I fermented this at 52ºF from 5/3 to 5/14 then raised the temp on the 14th to 68º for a diacetyl rest. On 5/19 the gravity was 1.010 for an ABV of 5.25%, I dropped the temp to 34º, and now it's resting.
I tasted the hydrometer sample on the 19th. Very yummy with no diacetyl. The WLP820 seems to have been a good choice.

I brewed a batch of this today. I used Wyeast Ocboberfest Blend 2633. 1.053 OG. Smells great!
