It's in the keg. Will be tapping it tonight. Color and taste are almost dead on. It seems a little sweet. I went to school in Emmaus years ago.

It's about as close to a clone as it' s going to get, after 3 weeks in the keg after the lager process.

Did you think lagering it made a difference? I'd like to try the ale version as soon as my grain comes in.

The answer in short is yes because lagering makes the beer taste much smoother. That's not to say you couldn't try it with an ale yeast, something like so5 or 1056. Give it a try and let us know your results. I would guess it would taste more like an October fest that was produced by them this year. Still looking for the bock recipe that is to come out the end of January.

If you are planing a ale version I would consider the California lager yeast it fermentation temp is 68F. I made it with this the first time and it was excellent. A clean ale yeast will be good but don't think it will taste as intended. You would be making a cream ale. Good luck

OK here's a pic. Not as clear as I would like but you get the idea.
