Nice, LutraFest is what I called my Oktoberfest last year as well. Great minds, man!Follow-up: Kegged the "LutraFest" last weekend and is already crystal clear. The longer this beer cold conditions, the more like a lager it seems. Even has this lager 'signature' that no other ale has had in my experience. Still, so far not as 'clean' as a commercial lager, but getting better and closer with conditioning for sure.
My wife, who normally dislikes most ales, or anything hoppy, had a glass of it last night--huge compliment. Her comment was "Just like being in the Hofbrauhaus!"
I agree, the yeast is a great option, especially for those without ferm temp control. But definitely not going to fool anyone. Still a nice clean yeast that attenuates well and drops bright really fast.
