Product Details
A variation on our extremely popular Kölsch recipe with the addition of honey and a new yeast strain for a lighter body and flavor. Like our original Kölsch kit, this recipe features a pale color, light body, and smooth mouthfeel. Honey adds subtle floral character and lightens the body by fermenting to dryness. Really nice as a summer brew for barbecues and picnics, or to wean your friends off watery mass-produced lagers.

After two years of homebrewing 30 plus, five gallon batches of beer, I've finally found what will become my standard "house brew"! I'll still experiment with different styles but this one will be a mainstay. This beer is golden, crisp, clear and ever so lightly hopped with enough of an alcohol punch to make you feel warm all over after only a couple of pints. If you didn't know that it was an ale, you would swear it was a Pilsner!! I did cheat a little with the recipe and added two cups of cane sugar to the boil. I calculated that in its basic kit form, it was going to be just a little too stingy on ABV and with the additional sugar, it finished out at a solid 6%. If you're a fan of lightly hopped, crisp and clean finishing beers, this is the one you're looking for.

Best 1st brew
Back again for the 3rd time purchasing this kit. Very light and the easiest beer to brew in a pinch. Make sure you use the blow off tube as suggested!

Excellent summer beer
Both this and the regular kolsch are very crisp and have a modest enough alcohol content that you can have a few and maintain your balance. This one has a nice hint of honey; not sweet or overpowering.

it WAS good
Brewed it, let some people try it, ran out of it. :( . Good news is, I have a great arrangement going with NB... if I keep buying the kits, they'll keep selling them to me. I bet you can get that deal too.

May be my next house beer
Excellent beer. Tasted like the Cream ale with a little more bitterness which I love. This will be a regular for sure.

This doesnt use Kolsch yeast?

BEST ANSWER: The liquid options produce a lighter body and more attenuation so the honey and dryness make for a very crisp easy drinking beer, since the gravity and alcohol are a little higher, this is how we thought it turned out best - it's a take on kolsch. Cheers
