Beer Color


This recipe can produce very different beers depending on the mash and fermentaion temperatures used. For a very crisp, clean, lager-like beer, mash at 63 C or 145 F and keep active fermentation to 14 C or 57 F. For a more fruity kolsch mash at 65 C or 149 F and keep active fermentation to 17 C. Using Safale K97 or Fermentis US-05 are some other ways of changing the resulting beer. Source: Lloyd Powell
