The flavor of an ale with the clean dryness of a lager? What a great combination! Kolsch is a great way for lager lovers to make a beer that does not require intensive temperature control.

Kolsch All-Grain Kit

  • Description
  • Product Documentation
  • Q and A

The signature of this Kolsch is its malt roundness and noble hopping. We like to ferment with Wyeast Kolsch yeast to get a slight fruitiness of an ale with the clean lager-like flavor palette. We like to pitch Kolsch yeast in the 58-62F range and let the heat from fermentation ramp the temperature up to around 65-68F. However this yeast ferments well any where between 56-70F. Watch out, this yeast can be volcanic! We recommend using half reverse osmosis or distilled water and half tap water for a finished beer more true to style.

A nice intro to all grain

I brewed this in October of 2013 as my first all grain. I was quite pleased with the results. I did modify the recipe just a bit by adding about a pound of local peach blossom honey at flame out. The result was a smooth, balanced beer with a crisp finish and just a hint of fruity sweetness from the honey. This is an easy drinking light bodied ale perfect for shopping and summer enjoyment.
