Decided to sample my Oktoberfest. Brewed 10 gallons on March 6. Kegged 5 April 1 and 5 on May 24. Pulled this pint mistakenly from the May 24 keg. So ti's only been lagering 3 months but man it's good. Can't wait to try the earlier one.
This one is pretty clear, condensation on the glass doesn't let it shine. Smooth, malty but light and easy drinking. Very light bitterness and light spicy hop presence.
41% pilsen, 41% dark munich, 18% vienna, hallertauer tradition FWH, magnum at 60, hersbrucker at 10. BIAB mashed at 152. Fermented with WL2206 bavarian lager yeast low 50s. I used to add some carapils and a little carafa special II to the grist bill. Decided I didn't need either and am happy with that call. I like the color and the body and head are just fine. I had planned this as a triple decoction brew day but just wasn't feeling it.
This one was pulled from the lagering fridge at 32.5F. Head should settle down a bit in the slightly warmer serving fridge.
