Style: German Oktoberfest
Our "Steinful" recipe kit is an Oktoberfest in the more modern tradition of the style. That means it's designed to be crisp, clean, and golden-amber colored rather than dark and bitter. This is by far our most popular German-style recipe kit - it enjoys top-ten recipe status all year long. Oktoberfest has less hop bitterness than traditional German beers like Bavarian pilsner and Bohemian pilsner. The flavor is that of malt with a slight sweetness. Steinful ferments well at a wide range of temperatures, a steady temperature between 58 and 72 degrees will give good results. Beers fermented at the warmer end of the temperature range will benefit from bottle aging, especially if you can refrigerate the bottles for a week or two after they've had a chance to develop carbonation.
