Honey Kolsch All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
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.

I was a little skeptical of making a lager recipe in the summer, and with ale yeast too. However, this was totally worth it. I highly recommend you add this to your rotation of beers in the summer (or even late summer/early fall) time. If you let this lager even a week, the honey flavor definitely comes through and really rounds out the taste. Although maintaining lower fermenting temps can be hard, this one doesn't require it. I used the suggested SafAle yeast, and tried to keep it at or under 68 (even during peak ferm), and it came out tasting great.
Great crisp beer. Ordered a second kit already!
Too Good not to make it again. One of my favorites.
I enjoyed how my brew came out. Use 1 gallon and added cranberries: Turned out amazing.
Simple recipe that is simply delicious and refreshing!
