Kolsch Extract Beer Recipe Kit
This pale, light-bodied golden ale is copyrighted by, brewed in, and named for the German city of Kön. 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!

Nice kit still in lagering stage
Darker than expected but tasted great!
I have always had good luck with Northern Brewer. I have been too busy to brew the Kosch.I’m sure it will be another good kit.
This was my first experience with this kind of brew. Two weeks in the primary fermenter, four in the secondary, all taking place in the garage where I turned down the thermostat so that it stayed at around 55 degrees for the duration. Bottled it, waited two more weeks and we’ve now opened some bottles—and boy, was it worth the weight. Easily one of the great beers and worth the patience if you can do this. This is an ideal kit to begin working on some of the more advanced beers that you might want to do down the road. Highly recommended.
Purchased as a Christmas gift for my husband. He makes beer in the summer.
