Extract with Specialty Grains Homebrew Kit
In the year 1810, the city of Munich celebrated the Crown Prince’s wedding with a special beer that kicked off a 16-day party. Oktoberfest was born! Otto’s Best combines a nice German back bone of malts, with a soft note of caramel, hops, and the color of rich autumn leaves, all adding up to a Lager as crisp as the October air. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.

- Speciality Grains: 6 oz. Caramel 60L, 8 oz. Victory & 2 oz. Chocolate Malt

Saflager W-34/70 Dry German Lager Yeast
We highly recommend purchasing dry yeast during the warmer months. While we offer a complimentary ice pack with all liquid yeast orders, the combination of warmer temperatures and shipping times makes it difficult for your liquid yeast to remain chilled.
I actually fermented this one with Munich Ale yeast instead of using the lager yeast strain and it still turned out great with some different flavors, but still retained a Oktoberfest style. I would try it again with maybe a different ale yeast just to see what other flavors I can get out of it. That's the best part of brewing is the experimentation that can occur.
