Tad sweet but working on this to get rid of that and some haziness due to the flocculant yeast, but this is a great session beer!

Do a yeast starter so you can enjoy this a week in advance!!!

Mash, at 151 for 60min
Sparge at 180 for 15min

Ferment @60-62 for all 4 weeks and of course put it in secondary after the second week.

Next time I do this I may lager it for a couple weeks. I hear it should clear it up and get rid of the sweet Kolsch yeast taste.
