    Lucky bugger, none at my Aldi today - had to buy a 6 pack of Hofbrau original.
    But it tastes better than the Hofbrau Oktoberfest I tried last year.
    Maybe it's just my standards have dropped. Are they actually different beers?

    The Oktoberfest should have a higher ABV at 6.3% vs 5.3% for the Original.

    Paulaner Hefe Weissbier and Paulaner Munchner Hell.

    Does anyone know whether the kegs can be hacked and re-used?

    Paulaner Original Munchner Hell is in my opinion the perfect lager. I absolutely love it.

    I think Franziskaner make better Weizens in particular the Dunkel.

    You can reuse the kegs but they are a bit of a hassle (in my experience).

    Getting the bung out of the top takes patience and care to avoid damage the bung and keg. You can get replacement bungs (eBay), but they don't necessarily fit all these types of kegs.

    I would advise that you enjoy the beer, but don't rely on the kegs as a packaging option.

    Had a couple of pints of the Münchner last night and I agree a very drinkable drop, quite smooth and not too gassy.

    Hi all, trying to work out how to reuse these kegs. Different bung to those in YouTube tutorials. Any tips. I've bungled this one but 5 kegs remain. Cheers Carl

    You could get a pack of 5 new bungs going back a few years ago Carl. Not sure if they’re still available. I think trying old bungs won’t work. If I remember the name of the product I’ll post it here.

    Look, you enjoyed the beer. If you want a reusable keg just buy one, what you have now is an empty can.
    Why spend time and money trying to reuse what is meant to be a one time thing.
    A reusable keg will last your lifetime.

    Just my 2c

    Yeah it's a shame when they do all those decent Oktoberfest beers, I'm sure they could have come up with a tastier mix from their current suppliers.
