added more wheat for the Kölsch
so it was
31 lbs of pils malt
5.5 lbs of wheat malt
1 lbs Munich malt
It went real well, the BGS gravity hit at 1.085, will add the 3lbs of corn sugar in a few days.
the 10 gal of kolsch was 1.049 so both were a hair low but not really all that much considering this is my first attempt at the whole Parti-Gyle tech.
over all I really liked it. I think it adds a new lvl of fun to brew day and recipe formulation.

I kegged this up today for bulk ageing going to let it sit a few more months then bottle with corks and cages. the beer tasted so good and is wonderfully clear now I had my doubts for a few months there.

The kolsch turned out really good , I had a keg party BBQ with a keg of peroni and dos equis, put the kolsch on tap that day too for me to drink, and people started drinking it and would not touch the other beer untill the 10gal of kolsch was gone, got a ton of complements and rave reviews from people who did not think they liked homebrew, that was nice but then I had no kolsch and a whole keg of dos equis to drink, after a few week I was hateing that $hit.

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Clayton's Kolsch.

Its a sticky so its easy to find and doesn't get buried in one of the forums.
thanks! Cool I'll probably join November 11, 2010 right? Is that the set date? How did the past "anniversary series" come out? I was wondering why... barely anyone did taste comments and stuff unlike Ed's apfelwine....

Thanks... now I know.... I'm in the mix!!

Getting close to that time! I decided I should try one of my 101010s out today and I'm very happy with it. I was worried about it carbing since if I remember correctly it is like 13.5% ABV. Well, it's perfectly carbed, clear as a bell, and tastes great! Last time I tried it, the alcohol stuck out enough to create an alcohol harshness that was not altogether pleasant. Now it has come into balance with the rest of the beer, the flanders golden ale yeast esters are really nice, and the flavor is really nice, if still a bit strong. The best thing about this beer is the color. It's a rich glowing gold, completely clear, with tons of little bubbles streaming up through it. I tried to take a picture but it doesn't really do it justice. I'm looking forward to tasting other people's interpretations in a couple months!

What is everyones experience with carbing? I bottled about a month ago with extra yeast. Opened a bottle last night to test and it wasn't carbed. Figure it just needs more time

As stated above, mine carbed up beautifully. They have been in the bottle for over 6 months now. I tested a bottle after 6-8 weeks or something and it hadn't carbed nearly as much as it is now. I looked back and my beer actually came out to 14.5% ABV. I used the flanders golden ale yeast to ferment but pitched a little actively-fermenting top-cropped us-05 at time of bottling to carbonate.

How sweet is this beer? How malty is it? Reason I ask is that I can stand maltiness in beer, but not sweetness.

Well it dried out to 1.007, so it's pretty dry, but it gives you the impression of being sweet. Not cloying at all, but there is a definite sweetness. And a LOT of maltiness.

Who is going to take the lead in setting up the swap? It's down to less than 2 months 'til 10/10/10 and from past swaps, we know it takes some people a while to get their packages sent out. We should probably start getting it set up pretty soon, so everything can be in place in plenty of time before the big day.
