Oktoberfest / Marzen Recipe Kit

The first Oktoberfest took place in 1810, to celebrate the wedding of the Bavarian Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. The people of Munich were invited to celebrate, and ever since Oktoberfest has been a hit! This Oktoberfest is a rich amber / mahogany in color. Vienna and Munich Malts add a nice depth and complexity. With notes of light toasted malt, along with toffee and caramel. The flavor is malt forward with a toasted aspect, and just enough hop character to balance.

Taste like sam adams oct/fest
Just kegged and carbed, worth the wait, 8 weeks total, used saflager 23 used 2 packs and a starter, blew top off 12 hrs later so use a big blow off, used single glass carboy left on yeast whole time, did rest 3 days and slowly dropped to 38° over 10 days and let lager for 30 days, dude my best beer yet kegged at 16 psi serve at 2psi, can't go wrong with this kit awesome job AIH, keep up the good brews. thanks.

Good Brew
Very tasty brew. So easy a caveman can do it. I've since moved on to All-grain brewing, but this recipe kit is what started homebrewing for me and it will always remain close to my heart.

Excellent recipe!
I brewed this as a lager and kegged it. Used 2633 yeast and used a temperature controller for my spare fridge to get proper lager temps. I followed the lager instructions found on this site to the letter. Had a little trouble getting the yeast to take off. Took 4 days but did finally go. I eventually lagered at 37F for 5-6 weeks in a secondary and kegged. I was very surprised how much more sediment fell out at the low temperature. After 6 days of slow force carb, my socks and everyone who tried my beers socks got knocked clean off! Crisp and clear as a bell! I plan to make this again and earlier so I can have an Octoberfest keg party this fall!!

Better than expected!
I got this kit from AIH in Ann Arbor. They recommended the US-05 Safale Yeast as they were out of the liquid yeast for this beer. This was My very first time of making beer and I had to call a couple of times to ask questions and AIH were super great about answering them. I did all my fermenting in the 6 1/2 gallon plastic fermenter for 2 weeks instead of 1 week in the fermenter and 1 week in the glass carboy. I think it was finished in about 5 days as the air bubbles pretty much stopped by then but I read the pro's and con's of transferring into a secondary and decided to leave in the primary for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks I bottled and let the beer sit for 3 weeks at room temperature and then poured one to test. WOW! I was really impressed with how good it was. My Daughter who helped Me with making the beer and her Boyfriend also celebrated with Me and were also very impressed with this beer, they said it was as good as any Craft Beer that they had tasted. Although I might want to try another style I think I will stay with this one for my next batch as it was soooo goood. Thank You AIH for a GREAT kit.

Great Year Round Beer
I bought this beer to brew and have for Oktoberfest. It is just an all around great tasting beer. This beer is not just for October it is a great year round beer. This is one beer that is hard to keep on tap because it just seems to evaporate.

Put my name on the map!
This has been so far the best beer I've brewed and everyone who's tried it has loved the flavor just as much as I have! My next goal is definitely in March will do an all grain attempt, and hopefully it'll be a 10 gallon batch with my recent investment into the all grain experience!!!!

Tastes Great!
I order this as the Marzen. Yeast active enough to blow my airlock, get a blow off. Tested at bottling time and it was delicious even being flat. Can't wait for bubbles!

I bought this kit because I wanted a good Oktoberfest beer. It was only $25 and had free shipping. I have a good amount of brewing under my belt now and this is the first kit that I just didn't care for. My batch didn't turn out with that great fall Oktoberfest taste. It tastes like a fall beer with a wheat yeast added. Maybe I was sent the wrong yeast??? I threw the vial away without checking the type of yeast so that may have been it. Also, all of my bottles are over carbonated. I let the beer ferment for 2 weeks in the primary and 2 weeks in the secondary. Once I pour into a pint glass, it has to sit for a few minutes for the head to retract. I would not buy this kit again as I have had many others without all of the issues I had with this kit.

Smooth, balanced and drinkable
Wonderfully pleasant lager. Lighter smooth taste, refreshing and very drinkable. A go-to beer at the last beer tasting. Quite a crowd pleaser.
