30 mins into the mash. Smells good as good wort does.

Looking to make this in the next week or two, want to let it "age" for at least a couple months before popping any open. Are there any commercial examples that you would say this is close to? Sam Adams or Great Lakes or Paulaner? Those are three pretty readily available options that vary quite a bit in taste in my opinion, just looking to see where this one falls.

Something about a good O'fest that I can't wait for, I've been thinking of making it a year round brew for myself.

I just put 5.5 gallons into the ferment chamber.

Made it last year and had the mash temps a little low but it was still a very, very tasty brew.

Hit the temp spot on this go around and am looking forward to seeing how it does. I liked it better than Sam Adams last time.

Thanks BM.

Made a 4 gallon batch about 36 hours ago because I only had a 5 gallon fermenter free and wanted to get this made before too much longer.
Using WY1450, Denny's Favorite, to bring out more of the maltiness. Pitched about 36 hours ago and starting to see krausen starting to build on top.

Can't wait to try this one!

I just did an Octoberfest but always liked Sams. What was your mash schedule like?
Also... 90min boil...ugh.

I just did a single infusion at 156. I also only did a 60min boil, don't see the need for a 90 min on this. There might be one but my limited knowledge on today's grains and how much they're malted this shouldn't need 90 min.
