Brewed this up BIAB in a 3 gallon batch. Everything went according to plan with a 90 min boil, but I just tasted it and I definitely have some DMS canned corn flavor going on. The only thing I can guess is I didn't boil hard enough for 90 minutes? Not really sure...
Has anyone had this when tasting after 2 weeks in primary? Hit my numbers and am all the way down to 1.006 after about 2 weeks at 62F. Any chance this will clean up if I leave it in the primary for a little longer?

Brewed this a month ago. Started at 1.058 and it stopped at about 1.022. I was hoping it would go down a bit further but it's been there for weeks. Kegged and tasted it today. It's warm and flat, but I already know that next time I will be using a different yeast. It's good, but there is a lot of sweet fruit flavours, I'm assuming from my fermentation temp. My basement is 68-70 degrees, and I have read that S-04 produces a lot of esters. I can't wait to see what it's like cold and carbonated.

Where did you get that hop/gravity chart on the front page? I assume it's part of the software you used to create the recipe?

Just starting to take sample tastes from this beer after 5 days force carb. Little young yet but can tell this beer is gonna go over well. Sweet but not cloying. I used wyeast kolsch yeast and fermented at 61 for ten days. Also reduced the 20l to 1# and added 1# of 60l. Fogot I used my other pound of 20l for an IPA and 60l was the lowest caramel that I had. Waiting for sam adams octfest to come out again so I can compare the two.

Brewed this today and plan on aging it for 20 weeks (until October). The OG was 1.063, but I was a half gallon shy of 5 gallons, so after I topped it off it was at 1.056. I can live with that. My basement is 64 degrees, and after a few weeks it'll sit in a keg down there until fall.

I *can* wait, though. No rush for autumn! But at least I'll have something to look forward to.

So I am having an Oktoberfest party this year. We are doing a Vienna lager an Oktoberfest lager and I am going to do a 10 gallon batch of this as well. After reading all of the reviews about this one I am wondering if we should even bother with the lagers at all as they will be taking up space in my keezer. I am extremely excited to brew this.

I have to quit reading through your recipies. I want to try them all. Did you leave this in the secondary for 4 weeks?
