I was told that my first O-fest was my best beer ever.

well okay euge,

are you gonna toss that out there and then NOT cough up the recipe?

Well I used 9# of briess amber extract and hallertau mittelfruh 0.25oz each @ 45, 30, 20 & 10. Yeast was s189.

I forgot to add Tom that Briess Amber is "a proprietary blend of base, Munich, and 60L crystal malts. Amber color and malty flavor with caramelly overtones" according to NB. I think it was a good fit for an off the cuff quickie batch and was very much in line with the many American Octoberfests that I've sampled.
