I was hoping for a Kolsch like Canoe Paddler, won't be brewing this again. Drinkable, but not enjoyable.

This recipe is the closest I've come to making a proper Gaffel clone. Hope you enjoy it, pitch a big starter and ferment coolish. Prost.

I brewed 25 Gallons of this Kolsch and was impressed when I tasted it directly out of the fermenter. My initial thoughts were that the rough edges had sofened up vary quickly, and the flavor was vary good. So I decided to enter it into the Alpharetta Georgia Brewmasters Open which was starting the next week. Amazingly it won an honerable mention. I have not had a chance to read what the judges thought yet. I think this beer could do even better in future competitions, given time to condition for the flavors to become more crisp, improve carbonation, and clarify even clearer. My thanks go to Bill King in sharing this recipe. For the Love of Beer.
