- Product Details
- This pale, light-bodied golden ale is copyrighted by, brewed in, and named for the German city of Köln. Kölschbier is traditionally given a long, cold aging period like a lager, which makes for a very smooth and clean beer. A small dose of German Hallertau hops cuts the richness of the malt. "Spritzy" is a word often used to describe Kolsch - very refreshing, and a popular lawnmower beer for beer snobs!

The kit was simple and complete when it arrived. It is currently in the secondary, will likely go into the keg this weekend, and ready to drink in another week or two after that - if I can wait that long. Also have a Citra IPA from NB about to go in the keg as well! Cheers.May 18, 2016Kolsch all grain kitEverything as describedMay 18, 2016Luckiest Man Pale AleWhat a great way to support ALS research! I took the liberty to adjust your fine original recipe by adding 3 oz. of Mango concentrate to my brew. I call it Luckiest Mango'in! I've received rave reviews from fellow brewers as well as friends that have quaffed my brews off and on for the last 10 years. Thanks, CharlieAugust 15, 2016Kolsch All-Grain Kit is by far one of the best kits i have brewedKolsch by its nature is a great tasting beer. This kit eliminates any of the guessing, that's why I ordered it 3 timesJuly 15, 2016Excellent traditional kolschFollowed multi step mash. Added 1/2 lb of pale wheat malt for added body. 75 min boil. Fermented at 57F for two weeks. Cold conditioned for 3 weeks at 32F. Kegged and it is easily one the best brews I have done. Will be doing this one again very soon.May 7, 2016May 22, 2016Fantastic as alwaysOrdered three all grain kolsch kits. Took a little longer than usual to ship. When the order arrived one of the hop packets had burst open. A replacement was sent with no questions asked. Always first rate customer service. This is why Northern Brewer is always my first stop for equipment and supplies. CheersNovember 24, 2015

It is a very good beerThis kit uses a regular Ale yeast but you ferment at lager temperatures?BEST ANSWER: A kolsh is actually an German style ale that uses a kolsh strain of yeast, it will ferment well at ale temps, but if you let the temp go much above 65 deg F during fermentation the ester profiles(off Flavors} will be more abundant and not to style,This was my second all grain brew... it came out much darker than expected for some reason, could it be due to a lower OG?
I respected the mash schedule times.BEST ANSWER: The color should lighten after fermentation as some of the proteins drop out of the beer during fermentation. You could have also picked up some color from scorching the wort if using a thin-bottomed kettle.
