Some people like IPA’s and some people hate them, some folks out there will only drink lagers while others like barrel aged stouts. It is rare when you find a beer that just about everyone will enjoy. I am not sure if I have accomplished that, but so far everyone that has tried this experimental Oktoberfest has liked it!
So why do I call it experimental? Well, about a month ago some friends and I were sitting at a brewery having beers and one suggested that we should brew up an Oktoberfest since October was approaching. I chimed in that we did not really have enough time to pull off a traditional lager. So we discussed it and decided that maybe we should do an Oktoberfest Ale, and in stead of stopping there, perhaps we can do an American twist on it and celebrate both German and American brewing heritage with it. So I worked on a recipe that did just that. I used both German and American grains and a single German hop, with higher than normal IBU’s and an American Ale Yeast! The results were a beautifully balanced beer, with a rich color and notable flavor!
So here is my crazy recipe. One of the only tweaks I would make is removing the 2oz’s of roasted wheat ( I removed it from the home brewing recipe listed here) . I added it for some additional color at the last minute and I probably should not have. The color is beautiful but a little too dark for an Oktoberfest.

I fermented with Wyeast 1056 American Ale and used a touch of biofin clarifier to really make it shine after fementation completed. Just make sure you cold condition it for at least 2 weeks before passing judgement!
If anyone decides to brew it, please let me know what you think!
When I started homebrewing (back in my day), beer clarity was important and the sign of a quality beer when it came to styles like lagers, blondes, pales and IPA’s! Whenever I would have an IPA, part of my rating of the beer, brewer and brewery was if they were brewing a clear / clean beer. About three months ago, one of my good friends challenged my belief on what a good IPA looked like and tasted like. He ordered a Vermont style IPA / Juicy IPA / Hazy IPA / New England IPA / Whatever the hell you want to call your cloudy IPA, and convinced me to do the same.
As the waitress delivered my beer, I remember thinking, I hope this monstrosity does not give me a hangover and hopefully it wont taste too terrible. Then I took my first sip. I was taken aback. It was delicious! I had to quickly take another, larger sip. My brain tried to analyze the surprising flavor as my preconceptions were quickly being erased. I asked my friend,”do they add fruit juice to this?” He answered “no”. I had to ask him if he was sure because it was so juicy. It was a wonderful mix of tropical and citrus hop flavors bursting from the beer. From that point on, I was a fan of the style and knew that I had to brew one.
So I started doing some research and decided that I was going to start with the “Haze Craze IPA” all grain hazy IPA beer kit from More Beer. The name did not sell me on the kit, but the recipe and hop additions did. I made a couple of small tweaks to the recipe, but they were pretty insignificant.
Here is what I ended up with:
( This will depend on your water, I do not have much mineral content in mine)
1 tsp Calcium Chloride (Mash 60 min)
1/2 tsp Gypsum (Mash 60 min)
Grain Bill: (Mash at 150F)
10 lbs 2-Row Malt
1 lb Flaked Oats
1 lb Flaked Wheat
8 oz Carapils Malt
8 oz Wheat Malt
4 oz Honey Malt
0.5 oz Warrior 60 Minutes
1 oz Citra 5 Minutes
2 oz Mosaic (Whole Cone) Whirlpool 15 min
1 oz Citra Whirlpool 15 min
Dry Hop Additions:
I know this is not typical, but add the dry hops about 3 days after the start of fermentation. Begin fermenting at 65F and then boost the temp to 70F when adding the dry hops.
2 oz Mosaic 3-10 Days
1 oz Citra 3-10 Days
1 oz Mosaic 7-10 Days
2 oz Citra 7-10 Days
London Ale III (This is important for fruity ester and haze production)
The beer came out fantastic! If you are considering brewing up a Hazy IPA, I highly recommend this recipe. Homebrew Supply also has an extract version of the recipe available for extract brewers. The beer kits can be found here:
