Beer Style: Kolsch, German ale
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons
Entered in local competition, 2nd Place, 33 points average. Most negative comments were on DMS and astringency which relate to poor technique but not recipe formulation. The yeast flocculated very poorly, I had to filter. But some I did not filter did clear after cold lagering. This beer should be fermented at relatively low temps and lagered COLD. Came out with subdued fruitiness, medium body, and dry crisp finish. Good luck!
Rest 25 min @ 135F, 25 min @ 145F, 60 min @ 155F.
