If anyone has looked at the recipe and was thinking of trying it here's a little report. 8 days after bottling, the beer tastes good, but is flat as a board. I think I'll shake them up a bit and let them sit for another 2 weeks before trying them.
My environment where my beer sits to carb is same for all batches, but it is amazing how different the carbonation progresses depending upon the flocculation of the yeast. I've had one done carbing in as little as 7 days (with 1056) and now my Oktoberfest (1338) looks like it will take a good 3 or 4 weeks (about the same amount of time as a beer I did with nottingham dry yeast).
I think I'll post when it's carbed fully on the taste. FWIW, like at bottling time, the beer is tasty.
