I'm doing an AHS recipe that I'm getting ready to rack.

7# Pils
2.5 # Wheat

1 oz. Perle at 60
1/2 oz. Tettnang at 15
1/2 oz. Tettnang at 5

WL029 Kolsch Yeast.

Very simple, yet elegant.

Thanks for the replies everyone -- maybe ill throw some cara-pils in there too 8oz or so.

Does anyone have any recommendations on how long and what temp to cold store this for? Ill be finishing up my kegorator this weekend and will have a spot for a third corny in it.

I ferment in a 61/2 gal corboy for about 1 week in my basement at 60F. Then I transfer to a 5gal corboy for about 2 weeks, then I bottle.
I've brewed about a dozen different ales and I like the Kolsch the best. It comes closer to being a lager than the others in my opinion. I don't have the equipment necessary to brew lagers.

We brew a Kolsch regularly, we let if finish fermenting at about 65F. Then turn the temp down to about 36 - 40F for 6-8 weeks. Let it warm up to bottling temp (48hrs)then bottle as usual. Not having kegged any beer before, you could probably keg it while cold.

I finally brewed that today -- missed my OG by 10 points but also ended up with a 6 gal batch. Dont think I boiled hard enough but im sure it will be fine in the end.

In regards to cold conditioning that long (6-8 weeks) is there any issues with yeast not being in suspension at bottling time? I am cold conditioning an AHS Kolsch clone at this time and wonder if I can just bottle like I always do. I think I read some place that most authenic Kolsch breweries don't use any wheat? anyone else heard of that? - Dirk
