Liquid Yeast Ships On Its Own ... Fast& Free In Just 2 Days!


The pinnacle of the Oktoberfest style, this recipe was created for the 2021 BrewChatter Brew Strong Competition.  Using 100% American malts courtesy of Briess Malting and Ingredient Company, this beer was created to be the perfect Oktoberfest, and does not dissapoint!  

Using highest quality malts, this authentic and delicious beer recipe yields what may be the perfect Marzen.  Deep, rich red in color and bursting with flavor, it is biscuit forward with just a light touch of malt sweetness and a backbone of lightly bready and toasted to give you a malt character like nothing you've tasted outside of Germany.  A balanced hop bitterness and a clean, lager-like dryness brings this beer together in a way that makes you want to drink it a liter at a time!
