Given that I don't have lagering capability, I decided to pitch Nottingham into a mini-mash kit and hope for the best. After 3 weeks in the bottle I was skeptical, as it tasted a little off. But waiting another month fixed it! The beer cleaned up nicely and it mostly tastes like a marzen should, though it doesn't quite have the crispness that would have come with the right yeast and conditioning schedule. Tastes great to me, though.

great recipe! One of the best oktoberfests i've ever had! Did mini-mash and fermented at room temp. took about a month to carbonate. (now i can't stay out of it!!)

Very Good Example of Oktoberfest Bier
I brewed the extract with specialty grains version of this beer in July 2015 for an Oktoberfest party in late October 2015. I did the initial fermentation at 50 degrees for two weeks, did a diacetyl rest at room temperature, then lagered at 35 degrees for two months. I used the WL liquid yeast for Oktoberfest. The beer was a hit, though I think I will make a Festbier next year because a traditional Oktoberfest may be too heavy for all my friends who don't appreciate a malty beer.

This was my first lager, and it turned out well. Very drinkable and I have gotten favorable feedback from others. If I were to brew it again though, I might back off of the flavor and aroma hops. There was a hoppy taste to the beer that I have not noticed in commercial oktoberfest/marzens that I have consumed in the past.

Between me & the buds, we've made over 10 batches of this Oktoberfest. Liked it better in the original recipe with just the original two specialty grains. Last several orders I've special ordered. This is a great recipe!!!!

Buddies & I have made about 9 batches of this. Great every time. AHS made a change about a year ago to "add more body". Still great but liked it better before the change. Will ask for original recipe next time.

This was my first true all-grain (where I lautered properly, boilded all 5 gallons, etc.) as well as my first well-controlled lager. It was absolutely delicious. I must not have extracted anough work (or boiled too vigorously) because my final yield was closer to 4 than 5 gallons. So it was a little sweet, but it was warming, well-hopped, clean, and balanced. I would recommend this recipe to anyone committed to the additional processing called for.
