I used the two cans of extract that I had planned originally along with the old grain that was steeped at 152-ish for about 20 minutes.
The whole thing was wrapped up by 10:30. Nice!
My hop additions were to the original recipe. This may have been a mistake. The Oktoberfest grains, which by the way aren't the same as they used to be on the NB website, were over the top caramel.
Flash forward 4 weeks and now I have a dry-hopped Oktoberfest style ale that smells EXACTLY like a Werther's Original.
Remember kids. Don't take candy from strangers. Beer...that's ok.
