YMK Oktoberfest

This is a rich traditional brew for the cooler days of Autumn. Brewed with a full 6.6 pounds of malt extract for a little stronger malty sweetness and higher kick. Imported German Hallertau hops provide perfect balance.



Place 1 gallon of water into the brew kettle. Put the malt into a boiling bag and place in the water. Bring the water to a boil and remember to remove the grain bag just prior to the boiling point.

Place the hops into a boiling bag and add them to the pot. Stir in the amber malt extract and boil for 10 minutes. Stir the kettle frequently to prevent darkening the wort.

Turn off the heat and stir in the unhopped malt extract. Keep stirring to ensure syrup is fully dissolved, taking special care to run a spoon along bottom of pot.

Add one gallon of cold water to the kettle. Pour remaining water into your fermenter then add the cooled wort. Pitch yeast when temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees.

Ferment and bottle using your usual methods.
