I prefer wlp833 to most other malt forward lager strains, it's fast, doesn't throw lots of sulfur and generally has very little diacetyl. It's also fairly clean all the way up to 55 F.

I love 833, the Ayinger strain is my go to lager yeast. I always ferment at 50, let it ramp to60 for a couple days for a d-rest and then ramp down to 40 for lagering. I am going to make a new school Oktoberfest, the kind served today, using this yeast.

I usually pitch at 45F and let free rise to 50F, wait until fermentation slows and then do a probably pointless diacetyl rest for 2-3 days. Cold crash for 2-3 more days just above freezing and then keg.

As far as recipe, are you looking for a traditional oktoberfest beer or something that is more like what they currently serve in Munich?

I am deciding on what recipe to use to for my first Octoberfest and lager for that matter. Care to elaborate on your recipe for a newer style Fest beer?

Do you have a recipe you can share for both styles?
