All Grain HomeBrew Oktoberfest Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a German Style Oktoberfest, similar to Copper Legend from Jack’s Abby. Amber-orange colored, medium-bodied with toasted malt aromas and clean crisp malty flavors. Moderately low hop bitterness.



9 lbs German Pilsner 2-row

1 lb Munich

1 lb Vienna

8 oz CaraMunich

2 oz Carafa III


1/2  oz. German Perle 8%a, 60 minutes

1 oz. German Spalt 4%a, 30 minutes

YeastWhite Labs WLP820 Oktoberfest or Wyeast 2308 Munich Lager


Mash all grains for 1 hour at 152 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above.

Chill down to 50F and pitch yeast.

Ferment for about 10-14 days until primary fermentation just finishes.

Diacetyl Rest: Raise beer temp to 62-65F for 2-3 days.

Rack to keg or secondary and start cold-aging process. If possible taper temperature down 5-7 degrees per day from Diacetyl rest to 35F. Cold age at 35F for 4-6 weeks.

    Brilliant! My first lager and one of the best beers I’ve ever made. Took 6 weeks to lager and about 2 weeks to drink. Hahaha Highly recommend! I stayed close to this recipie. Only difference is I did a double decotion. Cheers!
