Oktoberfest All-Grain Recipe Kit Oktoberfest All-Grain Recipe Kit Traditionally brewed in the spring and held at cold temperatures all summer, this is a beer meant for celebrations. A rich European amber lager, it is quaffable and yet full of flavor. Bready, toasty, and smooth, the malt character is at the forefront but it is not sweet due to the noble hop bitterness balancing it perfectly.

*Lagers take more attention to temperature control. This beer should be fermented at 50 degrees for approximately 10-14 days, and then the temperature raised to the mid 60s for a diacetyl rest. Following that rest, the beer can be lagered at 34- 40 degrees for 4-6 weeks to smooth and provide that distinctive crisp finish. It can be done as an ale, if lagering temperatures cannot be held. It won't have the “lagerlike” character that lager yeast and cold temperatures provide, but it will still make a very drinkable beer. When using lager yeast, make a large starter, or purchase two packages of yeast.

All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
