I brewed this Saturday 8/14/10 used Notty as the temps here in east Chula vista (San Diego) are a little on the warm side. Had 1.060 into the fermenter, Beersmith gave me 67% eff.
Looks to be a great beer. Like they say, "the waiting is the hardest part"!
Danke Ed!!

I'm brewing this today with Wyeast Kolsch II 2575. I plan on fermenting relatively cool...55-60F. I'll let y'all know how it turns out.

It's about that time of year, so I just wanted to endorse this recipe! Last year, I made this exactly, with the Kolsch yeast, and it was awesome.... Really enjoyable, easy drinking, and just a real good Ofest.

This year, I'm doing the same recipe, but I am lagering it with WLP820 Oktoberfest Lager, due to actually having a fridge to do it in. It'll be a relatively quick lagering, only 5 weeks, but here's hoping it's as good (or better) than last year's!

I sampled my first opening of EdWort's Oktoberfest Ale this weekend. WOW, WOW, WOW. I did a taste comparison with several other commercial Octoberfests and found that EdWort's recipe stood up nicely with all of them. It was my favorite of what I compared it to. (Sam Adams Octoberfest, Spaten Octoberfest, Bells Fest Bier, Flying Dog, and Gordon Biersch Fest Bier.)

Way to go EdWort!!!!

I have made your ApfelWein, Haus Pale Ale, and now the Oktoberfest Ale. They have all been spectacular.

Do you sell a recipe book? I think I might just start brewing everything you publish!

Cheers to EdWort and his wonderful quaffs!

I am forcing myself not to try it until 9/11/10, which is exactly 4 weeks in the keg. Man is that hard!
