Kölsch (brew #38)

Way behind on posting this one, but I only just kegged it yesterday after brewing my first attempt at Kölsch on July 19. I had been wanting to brew a Kölsch for a while, and so it seemed like a good choice when I decided to make a lighter beer for upcoming visits by relatives. I used a recipe I found on Mike Dixon's website.

Kölsch:
  • OG: 1.053
  • 25 IBU
  • 5.25 gallons
Grains:
  • 8.52 lbs Pilsner malt
  • 1.0 lb Wheat malt
Hops:
  • 0.55 oz Perle hop pellets (8.2% aa) @ 60 min
  • 1.0 oz Hallertau hop pellets (4.4% aa) @ 15 min
Yeast:
  • Wyeast 2565 Kölsch yeast
This tasted great when kegging. Looking forward to putting it on tap - both taps are occupied at the moment, though, so this one is waiting in the closet.
