I just popped the top on my fermenter to take a gravity reading and there is still about a full inch or so of krausen on the top! So much so that I decided to forget about even trying to take a reading and wait at least another week. I should mention that aside from the yeasty/fermenter smell, it smelled amazing! Can't wait to have a drink of this stuff in about 6 weeks!

Last fall was the first time I ever tried the style. And I've really fallen in love with it. It's a nice soft beer, for lack of a better description. It's a nice refreshing palate cleanser. The only reason I got into it was an Iron Brewer Comp (which I placed 3rd out of 15 entries in) held here in Michigan. The mystery ingredient was Fennugreek, and my team mate suggested we do a honey kolsch with it. After that I tried every one I could find and was really impressed with the gentle fruitiness of it. (Although personally I hate my fennugreek one though.)

I'm glad I happened up this recipe. I was going to just brew it as an Ale but I'm now gonna hold off a week. I have me new temp control unit on it's way and I think I will lager it in the new ferm chamber.

Detroitish Michigan? I'm originally from MI. Where from?

I live in Fraser, work for Wayne State University in Detroit. It's sort of all one area to me.

Kolsch is a nice mellow break from the hop bombs I usually have sitting around. Should be very clean and crisp with just a little fruitiness and earthy tones. Most BMC drinkers like it as well, so if your like me and have some friends that aren't into hoppy brews, it's a good one to have around.
