Oktoberfest isn't all sausage, sauerkraut, beer and bread - it's cold salads too! There are endless versions of coleslaw that you can make but the recipe below, alongside my delicious version of a cucumber salad, are simple, delicious and, once again, a great addition to your celebration!

Apple fritters are no joke - quite possibly my favorite fall treat; these scrumptious, moist and sugar-spiced dollops of dough are amazing if fried or baked! The original goal is to fry these into doughnut-like fritters but if you have any leftover batter or are too lazy to fry them, toss them in a muffin tin and let the oven do the work. Another great addition to the Oktoberfest menu and my personal favorite "end of the party" (read: drunk and sleepy) snack.

Definitely the easiest bread recipe ever to grace All Grains with its delicious presence. This no rise, quick bread will astound your taste buds and fit into any busy schedule. You can make this bread with any type of beer you'd like but a low IBU (bitterness) Marzen / Oktoberfest will really get you in the spirit and make a great addition to your Oktoberfest menu!

BeerSmith 2 is awesome indeed; for the beginning brewer wanting to merely keep track of their recipes or for the advanced nano-brewery - this software will help you manage, create and avoid doing the math for any recipe you could imagine. Whether you brew extract, all grain or mead this software will do the dirty work while you blissfully glide through its simple interface that allows for a wide variety of options and control.

After the success of the Fresh Cider and Ale Yeast experiment I've decided to use another of my favorite strains to make a new batch of slightly sweeter, rustic cider with the Wyeast London Ale yeast. The theme will remain the same; simple. This batch will also be fermented in the same keg it will be self carbonated and served from.
