This turned out awesome.  I'm so glad I made 10 gallons of it.  I must remember to brew a lager version next year so that it's ready for this time of year.  Delicious!

You should bring a sample of this to next meeting!

I had the Pumphouse seasonal yesterday on tap for first time, thier octoberfest ... pretty good stuff. Seems like alot of munich and vienna in your recipe but has sparked my interest. Looks delicious.

All I can say is WOW. I brewed something very similar to this (similar grain and hop bills) and it has to rank as one of my top 3 beers ever done! I used S-05 and turned out amazing!! Only notable difference with my recipe was that I used 2 pounds of caramunich II for 10 gallons instead of the cystal malt.

I'll bring some to the Mash Occur for your tasting pleasure.
