Looks great JT, no head on the Great Lakes brew?
Unfortunately I was sipping before I decided to take a pic and couldn't top off the GL.  Both of them faded rather fast though which is not something I'm used to seeing on my homebrew and not sure what the cause was.  This Oktoberfest is the only beer in recent memory that will totally flatline in head retention in a fairly short period of time.

I've noticed much less retention in both my own Oktoberfest/marzen and many commercial examples versus other styles of beer.  Not sure of the culprit.
I assume I'm doing something wrong in process, just not sure what that is or why it is only impacting this beer.  Style guidelines call for persistent, off-white foam stand.

Yeah, the style guidelines do say that, but I've never had a commercial Oktoberfest that had a long lasting head. Ever.
My homebrewed ones are usually decent on head retention, but nothing like a hefe or IPA though

My O'fest comes out 2-3 inches of off white foam that hangs around with nice 1/4 white cap.

Thanks!  I'll put this one in the books to brew and see if the head retention is any better than mine.

Yep, I will be there.  Usually I'm up front. This will be my first meeting in 2 or 3 months.  Work had me jammed up pretty good for awhile.

Looks great Ken

+1.  Looks nice. Waiting til Christmas to tap mine this year. I usually don't bump the abv with sugar but this one is ~ 7% abv, so I want to give it time to age a bit.

Hibiscus saison


That's a beauty.  Would you be interested in sharing some of the story on this one?  I made a hibiscus saison back in June/July and it was deep red.  I over did the hibiscus as it came through way too much.  I made a second batch that was much more palatable.  Have to check my notes at home.
