Kolsch All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
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!

Received grains ,hops & yeast have brewed it and now in fermenter just waiting
Great beer that I have made before. Current order is fermenting as I write this review. Beer brings me back to Cologne enjoying a Kolsch.
I've brewed this 4x and it's been nearly perfect. (the 3rd go was a bust, but that was operator error - be sure you fully aerate that carboy after pitching!) Other than that mistake, it has been perfect, and it's one of my favorites to have on hand all the time. It easily holds its own against any Kolsch you'd find in a bottle shop and dare I say at any local establishment stateside. The only negative feedback I've heard from any of my friends is when I don't happen to have any on tap. I go through it quickly, and I've stepped up production to keep pace. I use the Omega Kolsch II yeast for this as I think it's a fantastic Kolsch yeast. Prost!
Creamy,head, smooth taste, and just a real nice beer for the cooler weather just around the corner. Next batch, I'm going to lighten up on the Hops just a bit and use a liquid yeast.
Clean crisp and clear. Nice everyday beer.
