Product details

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.

Oktoberfest

My biggest and only problem with this kit was that there were no instructions on brewing. I had to look everything up online. As this was my first time ever brewing an all grain, I’m worried it’s not going to turn out.
I’ve enjoyed my past purchases though. Fingers crossed this one turns out.

Nice Kit/Looking forward to Beer & Pretzels

I finished primary fermentation at 49F up after 2 weeks & it's been lagering at 36F. The taste test just before lagering was encouraging -- looking forward to serving this up in 4 more weeks.

Currently lagering, so we'll see...

The kit was great. My OG was spot on, but believe I initiated fermentation a little too early. (Really need to get below 60F in order to avoid banana flavored esters, which I could smell when transferring to secondary.) Fingers crossed, we'll see...

Jury's still out on these bad boys...

Ordered two of these with Omega OYL-107 and brewed separately. Yeast was dreadfully hot by the time it made it to me so I cooled it, reached out, and NB said it'd be fine. Ran both yeasts with starters independently of each other on their own stir plates to keep them separate. Fermentation took 3 weeks at 52 to get to a little over 1.02. Slowly bumped to 56 and got down to 1.012 around week 4. Pushed them to 65-67 for d-rest (3-day) and came back down all of week 5 to 34. Taste on both seems a bit off compared to other lagers I've brewed but these still need a month or two to lager before I can give a definite answer.
