Oktoberfest All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
This famous German style is stronger than an everyday lager and is the fuel for Oktoberfest celebrations all over the world. The original pre-industrial Oktoberfest was called Märzenbier, brewed at the end of the brewing season in the spring to be lagered in caves all summer for fall and harvest festivities. Our kit will give you a full-bodied and elegant red-amber beer with a subdued German noble hop bitterness and complex malty profile that great all year round.
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

My Oktoberfest batch came out amazingly...such good quality ingredients!
This seems to be a great beer. Started on July 26. ABV is at 6.17 as of 2 weeks ago. I have this in a keg holding at 50 degrees for another 4 weeks. I’ll check back after it’s tapped.
Every year we have an Oktoberfest party. People always compliment me on this beer. I usually make 10 gallons that will be gone within 1 week. I also serve the pumpkin ale. Big hit.
Pretty easy recipe to follow. Ended up adding couple of pounds of maple syrup at the end of the boil to make this a maple - marzen. Stopped fermentation at about 7.5 ABV. It was a real crowd pleaser for a family party.
