I really like the sound of this recipe, so I decided to buy the supplies and am gonna make it on the 4th.

I was considering adding only about half of the hops suggested, though, to cut back on the overall hop profile of the beer.

Anybody whose made this beer, would the hops even be detectable with only an oz of each style in it? I'm looking to make a beer that's still accessible to people who are typically only lager drinkers... trying to slowly introduce some people into the beer world.

My other idea was doing the first addition at 45m instead of 60m, and trying to cut back on the bitterness that way.

Anyways, any suggestions would be awesome. I can't wait to try out this beer.

NB has a pilsen extract I use 6# of, along with the carapils and a # of DME. I make a noble pils with one oz each of pacifica, czech saaz, hallertau, and tettnanger. I hop with the following schedule:

hallertau: 1/2 oz @ 60mins.
saaz: 1/2 oz @ 45 mins
Hallertau 1/2 oz at 30 mins
tettnanger 1/2 oz at 20 mins
saaz at 15 mins
pacifica 1/2 oz at 10 mins
tettnanger at 5 mins
pacifica at flame out

Its a bit heavier and more balanced than this recipe, more in a czech style.

Kolsch yeast lends itself well to lagering. ferment at the coolest part of the range, then lager for 4 weeks.

Just bottled my take on this. Only thing I changed was to take the temp down to 35-40 for a couple weeks before bottling.

Very excited to try it!

Just realized I never checked back in on this. It turned out great! I think next time I will go for a lighter color, but the flavor profile is nice and clean, balance leans a bit towards hops (just as I was hoping for)... Overall delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

Yeah man, this is one that I am going to try and keep on hand. I've made 3 batches of it (finished the last of the 3rd batch tonight) and it's something I'd like to consider a housebrew of sorts - with props to the original recipe poster! I use the US-05 vs the Kolsch yeast though. Otherwise, everything's the same and it's a favorite!
