Oktoberfest 2018

It’s time to get an Oktoberfest fermenting that will be ready to tap sometime late in September when the weather will warrant a beer like this. This year, I’ve decided to try out a few craft malts that are becoming more popular. I haven’t used Mecca Grade or any of the others yet so it seems like this will be a great style to try out some examples of Munich malt. These are said to be richer, maltier, and grainier than the larger producers like Great Western or Weyermann, etc. Would be really interesting to do a blind tasting with this beer and the same recipe using Great Western. Maybe Brulosophy will do one like that sometime.
