Traditional Oktoberfest beers are lagers. But there’s no reason you can’t take an Oktoberfest recipe and use Ale yeast. Which is exactly what I’ve done here. It was my first experience with Wyeast German Ale yeast. A yeast I will definitely use again. This was also the very fist beer that I kegged.
As you’ll see in the video I cam out with a side project IPA using the extra wort and .75# of DME. It turned out great. Much better than I expected.
I hope this encourages you to not dump your extra wort. You can still make a great beer out of it with some help.
