Just use 1 or 2lbs of the 55/45 mix instead of just using light DME/LmE. Just leave the wheat out of the partial mash (just mash some pils and the vienna).

I like to use around 1.3 quarts/pound. So for 5lbs of grain, I would use about 6.5 quarts. (6.5 liters would work too)

Thanks for the easy recipe. I think I might try this one after a 7 month break from brewing. Plus..it's been a while since I've done a PM. Good to be back.

This turned out great! We had a heat wave when this was in the primary fermentation. Temps in the room got up to 80 but it still turned out great. Going to brew it again and will be able to primary with optimal fermentation temps. Will be good to compare how the temps effect kolsch yeast. Thanks for the recipe.

So brewed this again this past Sunday while drinking the batch that I brewed almost two months ago. It cleaned up really nice and is perfect for post-hockey game/surf brews! I have one question. Why add the DME with 15 mins left in boil? Does this have any effect on the brew? Thanks,

Prevents unnecessary caramelization of the extract. Not really needed if you are doing a full boil, but absolutely necessary if doing a concentrated boil IMO. Search for "extract late addition" or something.
