This review is from: True Brew Oktoberfest Home Brew Beer Ingredient KitSo far i haven't been let down by true brew kits. Pretty much guaranteed a good tasting beer (if done properly). This Octoberfest tasted great during every step of the process. It needed about a month in bottles then it started tasting really great! It's a mild, drinkable beer with a decent flavor and a mild yet distinguished hop character. I think i'm gonna buy another octoberfest kit and try slicing a few peaches or apricots into it and see how it comes out!
I'd definitely recommend a true brew kit for your first couple of brews. you can get the process down before playing with recipes.

If you think adding peaches or apricots would improve the taste of this BEER, I don't think I'll try it

Tried a batch of this a couple months back, adding a dozen fresh peaches, well crushed, added after the boil at about 160 or 170 degrees. So far i havent met anyone who doesnt love it. Came out like a lighter versversion of Magic Hat #9. The peach added a lot of body as well as a decent amount of fermentable sugar. Its not overly "peachy" flavored, but subtle, just as i intended.
