Default Partial - Can't Lager Oktoberfest

Recipe Type: Partial Mash
Yeast: Wyeast 1338 Smackpack
Yeast Starter: If you want
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.057
Final Gravity: 1.016
IBU: 30
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 13 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 days 68F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days 68F

Grain for Partial Mash:
1 lb Two-Row 2L
1 lb German Vienna 3L
3 lb German Munich 8L
1 lb German CaraMunich 55L

Mash at: 153F
Sparge with: 168F

Extract to add with 20 mins remaining in boil:
3 lb Extra Light DME
1lb Amber DME

Hops:
1oz Hallertau 4.6% AA 60 min: 13.2 IBU
1oz Tettnanger 4.7AA 60 min: 13.5 IBU
0.5 oz Hallertau 4.6% AA 25 min: 3.8 IBU
0.5oz Halleratau 4.6% AA Flamout: 0.0 IBU

Irish Moss: 1 tsp 15 min

Prime with 3/4 cup corn sugar and bottle.

Boil Volume for me was about 3.7 gallons, reduce hopping schedule if doing a full boil. Also this is on the very high end of bittering according to style guidelines, so if you're concerned about that, turn it down a little bit.

I used an ale yeast because I don't have lagering capabilities. The beer turned out very well. I will be making this again two times in the next couple of months.

Am going to try your recipe but would like to reduce IBU to around 22. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Reduce the Hallertau and Tettnanger to 0.5 oz.

Or don't boil them quite so long.

Have had the brew fermenting for 21 days and will bottle it on Monday. Question: How long should it mature in the bottle?
Thanks!!

Traditionally, it is from March to September. So 6 months.

how bitter it was? I am still discovering the styles of beer, but I'm trying to do something like Hacker Pschorr year 1417, a kellerbier, sometimes referred to as an Oktoberfest.
Any resemblance?
thank you
