I want to get going on a Oktoberfest this weekend but am unable to Lager at this time, so I'd like to use a Ale yeast. Any suggestions ? I know this isnt true to the style but I guess this will have to do for now.

Check out Biermuncher's Oktoberfast recipe. I'm looking to try this one soon.


Keep the ferment temp low with a swamp cooler.

Use Kolsch yeast and ferment around 60 then cold condition for as long as you can stand it.
