Kolsch American Wheat
A bit of a twist on an American Wheat, this twisted up version will use a Kolsch yeast! Why Kolsch you ask? A lot of people do not enjoy the banana flavors imparted using many of the wheat or hefe yeasts available today (myself included). Using a Kolsch yeast will give you very mild fruit notes, such as pineapple or pear but does away with the phenols and banana flavors often associated with many american wheats and hefes. Due to the uniqueness of this yeast there is not really a dry yeast option that will give you the intended flavors therefore we will only offer the Wyeast Kolsch yeast.
Extract version is made with DME and steeping grains. Steeping grains are packed in a muslin grain bag perfect for steeping. 5.25 gallon recipe.
All grain recipe is based on a 5.5 gallon recipe at 70% efficiency.
Both recipes come with detailed instructions which may or may not need adjusting to you own brewing style. Both recipes end up right at 5.25 ABV.
Try this and I think you will love it!
