    Festbier BierMuncher's OktoberFAST Ale (AG)

    I'm sure when I made this last year, I did 21 days primary then into Keg. I was best at about 3-4 weeks in Keg, but still good right away. I used the PacMan yeast last year, but planning on using Cali Lager this year.

    Warm wash and rinse. You could even just run it thru with water just to rinse out the sugars. I only use about a tablespoon of oxy.

    +1 for wilserbrewer bags. I'm on at least 25 uses and no issues. I just rinse out grain then run thru gentle cycle with a scoop of oxyclean after every use. I can't see why it wouldn't last indefinitely.
