Octoberfest

Recommended Posts

Just poured the first Vienna Lager I had. It's been in the bottle for four weeks. Just to be honest, it's not very good. Granted I just did the basic booster recipe and everything but it has pretty much no flavor. Is it just me or what? I hope these new recipes are worth it otherwise not sure what I'm going to do.

Sounds like you did the older Vienna refill with the booster? Some folks prefer a light-bodied, light flavored beer and some folks prefer a full-bodied, full-flavored beer. Sounds like you might prefer the latter. Me too. Simply add 1/2 to one lb DME or LME and you should be good to go. The possibilities are endless, but that's just a real simple option for starters, if you want more flavor and body.

My first beer was just a basic refill with booster and it's was the worst that I made. So try some of the more complex ones that don't use booster and I think you'll see they are a lot better.

if it is the basic recipe, with booster, it might seem kinda thin and flavorless. it is to me anyway. i have not had the chance to drink any of the new stuff yet.

1lb of DME, 1/2 bag of booster and you would have a a really good beer. I really like the OVL. :drinking:
