Notes

Prepare starter 3 days in advance if your using a starter.

This brew is for those that want to make a Oktoberfest style homebrew but do not have the capacity to lager or use a fermentation temperature control chamber. We are using American Ale yeast in the place of the traditional lager yeast.

You can also use WLP001 in place of US-05.
