Krasny Oktyabr

I actually didn’t get around to doing an Oktoberfest last year, so I was really excited to get this year’s batch brewed early. Unfortunately, NCM took over three weeks to ship my malt order – but they sent me an extra sack to make up for it. (Shh… I don’t think they know.) No matter; I’m sure four months or so of lagering will be OK.

The sweet wort sample may be the best I’ve ever tasted. Really fresh Munich is just incredibly rich, complex stuff. I actually straight up ate a little while I was brewing. The color is absolutely fantastic too.

Unfortunately, I undershot my efficiency again, although only by a few percent. My past few brews have been all over the place and I have no idea why. I may just be expecting too much potential extract from the pilsner malt. Hopefully I’ll get the lot analysis from NCM shortly.
