Oktoberfest Ale

This batch was inspired by Brewing Classic Styles, however I am moving in a few weeks and won't have time for a full lager stage as well as wanting to double up with a Raspberry wheat fermenting at the same time.  With a time crunch and only one temp controlled cooler I decided to go off the books and make it as an ale with the lager like German Ale yeast.

5 lb - Pilsner Malt
3 lb - Vienna Malt
