First Oktoberfest, great results!
I was so little hesitant with this kit, because of the ale fermentation versus lagering. But the finished product is fantastic! Kegged it after just over two weeks. Tastes better each day, I wanted to wait at least 4 weeks for conditioning but it just tastes too good to wait. Will buy again...probably as soon as I'm done writing this.

Very good, but there are better ones
This made a good beer, but it wasn't as malty as I would have liked. On it's own, I would be happy. It's a tasty beer. However, compared to my prior recipes and store-bought martzens, this could be a little maltier. .

Halloween Hit
I kinda rushed this for a Halloween party we hosted. Kegged after 12 day?s fermenting. Force carbed for 5. Turned out great. I got lots of compliments

Refreshing OctoberFest Beer
Awesome beer, smooth taste with amazing flavors.

Defiantly need to go 8 weeks on this beer before you drink.
4 weeks in keg minimum for optimum taste.

I have brewed this beer 4 times now, every time it gets slightly better. This is a must have for October!
