I just sampled my first bottle of HB Festbier today and it turned out rather nice. It was 87 % Pilsner, 10 % Munich and 3 % Aromatic. Hopped for 60 minutes with 23 IBU of Hallertau Mittelfruh and lagered at 40 F for 7 weeks. Initially it had that sulfur smell, but that dissipated during lagering and is now gone. About the only negative that i can see is that it doesn't have much head retention. Perhaps it needs some maltodextrin or wheat next time. Otherwise, it is a decent replica of beers that I had in Munich biergartens.

I use 3-5% carapils in just about everything I brew. I know there are some out there who say it doesn’t make any difference. I like it and I use it.
