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.

Easy to make, favorite brew for visitors
Tastes excellent, visitors love it. Easy drinking beer. Not great with food - GREAT on a hot day. Definitely a session beer at my house.

A staple in the rotation
Was looking for a good "go to" easy drinking beer for friends and family that don't get in to the "crazy stuff". Have done this All Grain kit 4 times now with consistency and success. Very light and drinkable. Often quoted as a "lawn mower" beer, but I would say it is far removed from the crud of "Lite" beers. Don't be fooled by the words "honey", I cannot pick up on it in the finished product, but feel it does add to a crisp finish. Find a spot to lager (take out shelves in a second fridge) as I feel it does add positively to the brew if left for two weeks to lager.Overall, I highly recommend you give it a try!

great entry level beer
I brewed this as one of my first all grain recipes and was thoroughly impressed. Although I missed my OG by a little it still tasted great and both my wife and my mother said they thought it was pretty tasty. My mom actually had a couple pints. Pretty good for two Coors light drinkers. I will brew this again in the spring.

Like a Swede in an Ecru Suit
I brewed this for a party celebrating the start of summer. The beer was very popular, but they were not huge drinkers and fortunately there was some left over. Had another small gathering mid summer and again very popular, not huge drinkers though and fortunately there was some left over. Had an old friend I hadn't seen in ten years come and spend a few days and it kicked the second day of his stay. Usually, I have something else on line ready to go, but I'd been gone and had no back up. I was crushed. It was as if my summer ended in a splutter of foam from my tap. I loved this beer. It's like a swede in an ecru suit: a flower on his lapel and a twinkle in his eye. No dramatic changes with maturity. There was a "bit early" tasting and then an "it's done" tasting and it only became slightly drier over the 6 weeks it lasted. All tastings were good as in "this is a keeper."I batch sparge. No mashing, brewing or fermenting issues, no blow off - had nice ambient temp during ferment.Finishes dry/crisp and refreshes as others have mentioned. I'd encourage some light dry hopping of something floral to accentuate very subtle floral from the honey.

New Favorite
I brewed a batch of Honey Kolsch and it is fantastic! All my beer drinking friends love it and want more. There were even a couple of people that normally don't like beer that loved it. This is going to be a regular for me!

Pretty Weak
8 hours of my day + 10 gal of wasted beer = northern brewer posts a bogus promash recipe for download

I've been brewing for several years now, and I finally found one my wife enjoys. I think out of all I/we have concocted over the years this is hands down her favorite. It's very crisp and clean, and does not leave a bitter after taste. It's very refreshing and can be enjoyed year round. I will definitely be making it again and have another batch in my cart right now !! Cheers !!!

Fantastic Receipe
This was my first All-Grain brew. Only hit 160 temp on mashout with Rubbermaids. Only 1 month old and will not last 4 days. This is some of the best beer that I have brewed this year and I have brewed 110 gallons of homebrew YTD. Have already ordered another kit along with 3 others...I am from Texas. Don't take my guns and don't mess with my homebrew!

Not familiar with the Kolsch style, but...
If it's anything like this brew, it's got to be pretty good. I didn't have the ability to lager this as recommended in the recipe, so I just did a short room-temp secondary (78'F here in AZ) just to help clarify it and hoped for the best (the choice of wheat yeast didn't seem to require lagering). I just forced carbonate it late last week, and just drew the first pint. It's nice and fairly sweet; I'd give it 5 pints but I feel it's a little unbalanced- too malty...then again, not knowing much about the style, I could be completely wrong!

just wondering what temps to ferment . it says to cold ferment in secondary how cold is cold ?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have made this twice... the first time I chilled to 60 and added yeast, then fermented for 14 days at 50, then 5 days at 55, 3 days at 68, then condition in keg for 5 days before serving. The second time i pitched at 65 for 3 days, then at 68 for 5 days, then into keg and condition for 3 days. Honestly, other than the first batch being just a bit “crisper”, there was little difference.
The recipe PDF is blacked out. Also, what is the additional equipment needed?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The additional equipment needed is what is necessary for brewing any all grain beer. The list of equipment can be found under all grain brewing equipment.
