Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
Delicious Kolsch Ale - medium weight, not very bitter, very refreshing.
Soak the specialty malts in a mess bag at about 150 degrees F for an hour. Pull them out. Add DME being careful to avoid a boil over. After all the DME is dissolved, bring to a full boil and add Fuggle. Boil for an hour. Five minutes before the hour is up, add the Amarillo.
Cool the wort, pitch the yeast, ferment in a carboy for 2 weeks. I did not use a secondary fermentation for this but you could. Add the dextrose before bottling.
