Notes

People LOVED this. They kicked a whole keg of it in one night. They are asking for it again.

Basically copied from the Northern Brewer Oktoberfest Kit.

Just opened my first 22oz of a 10 gallon batch I did. This is an excellent beer. I ended up using a yeast blend from my LBS, but I have to imagine it was close to WLP820.
