Sounds like the collective has had a profitable O-fest season!  :)
Just brew it...

Tapped my Oktoberfest today.  I'm not happy with the results.  I pitched too warm.  First time I tried using a prechiller, but the cooling water was still to warm and ran the wort too quickly through the CFC.  If the fermentation flaws were coreected, it would be okay.  The hops need to be toned back.

Lager it for a month or two and give it another taste.  It should get better.  ;)
