Hi all

Anyone have a proven Oktoberfest recipe for BM. In particular the mash profile?

You could try the Festival Beer recipe from the Speidel website. A list of the Speidel recipes can be found in this topic: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=348
There is a short discussion about the recipe here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=332

And to make it easy I pasted the 50l recipe below:

Let us know how it turns out!

5.5 kg Pilsner malt
5.5 kg Munich malt
