Am I reading it wrong, or are you mashing at 158 degrees? Personally, I'd go much lower in the mash temp, around 150 or 152, max. I prefer my Kolsch to be on the dryer side. At 158, it may end up a bit cloying. You'll definitely get body, but it will likely be pretty sweet too.

I agree. I JUST listened to the Jamil show on Kolsch. He says mash at 149 for 70 min. We must obey the master! Other than that it looks fine. Maybe throw up to 5% wheat malt for some breadiness.
