This fest beer, historically brewed in spring and aged in cold caves over the summer, is a copper-colored Lager with an emphasis on that German malt flavor. Our recipe achieves that malt flavor with lots of Pilsner malt extract. The use of Caravienne and Caramunich malts contribute the copper color and a unique, subdued toffee/malt flavor. First-addition hops are Hallertauer, while finishing-hops are Czech Saaz.

Not for the beginner
This is a time consuming and knowledge based product, I did a lot of studying about how to do a lager and thought I could. Tasted ok, waited longer it tasted ok, put a couple in the fridge and waited longer tasted better but still ok.

My first lager, best beer I have made yet!
I didn't know what to think about this beer at first. So glad I made it! smooth, flavorful, crisp, not hoppy. I brewed this as an all grain, and paired it with wlp820 yeast. Kegged 5 gallons and it wasn't enough.... My friends and family made it disappear withing days! even a few people that don't drink our "real beer" loved it!

I'm making a 10 gallon batch for my second run. I'm gonna have to wrap the kezer with an electric fence!!!!

Big hit
Brewed this beer for an Oktobefest party last year. Same as another reviewer... I brewed it the first week of August and let it lager until I kegged it the week before the party.

Everyone really liked this one. It was the first keg kicked. It's definitely nothing crazy, just a solid representation of the style. Will be making this again next year.

Crowd favorite
Always brew this for our annual Octoberfest party, start the first week of August and let it lager until kegging. Just fantastic. 15 moochers and never a complaint.
