im currently looking to do my third brew.. im looking at two kits i wanna try,, they are kits from "the home brewery".. one is "german oktoberfest" and the other is called "belgian wit".. my question is nowhere on the site or catalog does it tell whether these are ales or lagers.. the reason i ask is that i am new and have no place to ferment at lager temperature yet. sorry if its a dumb question. thanks

Oktoberfest is a lager, but Wit is an ale.

Believe it or not, Wikipedia is a good place to look stuff like that up. You're not going to get any recipes there or anything, but all major types of beer have their own entries and you can read a little about them.

As for your first question (Lager or Ale?) the answer is... yes.
