The following items are included with this product:

Grain Milling Option:

This is a style-accurate, traditional Oktoberfest or Marzen that is popularly consumed in the fall. Not to be confused with a Festbier, this beer is malt focused but still bittered enough to maintain balanced drinkability. It should not come across as sweet.

Equal doses of imported German malts; Pilsner, Munich and Vienna lay the foundation and Noble German hops cut through and keep it refreshing.

Bobby took a first place gold metal and also second place best of show at the 2018 NJ State Fair with this recipe.

As a true lager beer, these are your fermentation options in order of preference:
Pitch 2 packs of Omega OYL-114 or make a 2 liter starter from one pack and ferment at 50F.... or
Pitch 2 packs of Saflager W34/70 dry yeast and ferment at 50F.... or
Pitch 1 pack of Saflager W34/70 and ferment in the low to mid 60's (the sacrifice of this option is increased fruity esters and less lager like profile)

If you plan to bottle condition, be sure you have 4-5 ounces of priming sugar. You can purchase that as an accessory as well.
For emphasis: This kit does not include yeast, it must be selected from the accessories list on the right.

Other acceptable modifications to this recipe:
  • None... didn't you read? Gold Medal ;-)
  • Kidding aside, this is a good base recipe for making into a pumpkin beer if you're the type of person to make pumpkin beers.You don't need to add actual pumpkin, just add pumpkin pie spices into the fermenter.
  • This is also a good base recipe to make a Rauch Beer (smoked beer). The pilsner malt would be replaced by Beech Smoked malt.
