Let me know how your clones have turned out.

Thanks,
I have it from a credible source that New Glarus uses Wyeast 2565 Koelsch yeast fermented at 68º.

Here is my conversion to extract. Read the notes section for the procedure.

0.50 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Kolsch Yeast (Wyeast Labs #2565) [Starter Yeast-Ale


Mash Schedule: None
Total Grain Weight: 6.91 lb
----------------------------
Steep grains as desired (30-60 minutes)


Notes:
------
The day before brewday prepare a 1L (1quart) starter by adding 100 grams of light DME to 1000mL of water, bring to boil for 15 minutes, cool in sink to 70º, then pitch smack pack. Aerate by shaking as often as possible until brewday.

On brew day: In your main brew kettle, steep Munich malt with 2 quarts of water in a large grain bag at 155º. While the Munich is steeping, in a separate kettle (cereal kettle), combine the corn, flaked barley, 6-row, and 4 quarts (1 gallon) of water and bring to 155º. After a 10 minute rest, slowly bring the cereal kettle to a boil. Boil for 30 minutes. Then dump the cereal mash into the grain bag holding the Munich malt in your main kettle. Mix well within the bag and make sure the water seeps through the whole thing.

Lift the grain bag out of the water, and fill the kettle to the largest pre-boil volume your kettle can handle by pouring the water slowly through the grains int he lifted bag. This will rinse the sugars out of the grain and into the kettle. If you have a smaller kettle, use Fermcap-S to avoid boil overs and increase your boil volume.

Bring the kettle to boil. Remove kettle from heat, stir in half the DME. Bring back to boil and start boil timer. Add hops as directed. At 15 minutes remaining in the boil, add the remaining DME and half a Whirlfloc tablet along with some yeast nutrient.

Cool to pitching temps (68º) via ice bath or whatever. Pitch entire yeast starter. Ferment at 68º actual fermentation temperature (likely about 62º ambient). After fermentation is complete (about 7 days), cold crash to 32º or as cold as you can.

In 14 days, bottle keg or do whatever you like. Wait for conditioning and enjoy!

This should drop in gravity to about 1.008 ish or at least 1.010. A good starter and plenty of O2 at the start of fermentation are important to dry this beer out.

Haven't made it, will be soon though. I will be brewing an all-grain version of it. I think the grains are going to be very close, but predict that the hop flavor will need tweaking. Should be good.

I'll let you know.

OK sounds good, thanks for helping with the extract version. I found an AG recipe yesterday but I haven't made the jump to AG yet, but will plan to make a mash tun soon to be able to get there.

I'll let you know how the extract version goes...will be brewing Saturday. Thanks again!

How difficult would it be to post a partial mash version?

What I posted pretty much is a partial mash. It is in fact a mini mash with a cereal mash technically.

So I could follow your recipe if I don't have all grain equipment?

I do have 2 brew kettles, just not all-grain size!

Yes. I literally spelled out how to do it in the notes. All you need is two kettles and a large grain bag.
