Default All-Grain - Notatalla Kolsch

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: S-04
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.75
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: 1.009
IBU: 54
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 4.4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 29 days 63 F
Tasting Notes: Clean pilsnerish ale

10 lbs Golden Promise
2 1/2 lbs Maris Otter
4 Oz Munich

35 g Magnum @ 75 mins
28 g Hallertauer @ 20
28 g Hallertauer @ 15
28 g Sazz @ 10
28 g Sazz @ 5

This is a lovely lagery ale with enough hop bitterness and presence to make it interesting but still very approachable for those light lager types.

Mashed at 148 F, fermented long and cool - 63 f for 4 weeks, the last 4 days cooled it to 40 f or so. Came out nice and clear and light and spritzy and perfect!

You really can't call this a kolsch. Its OG is a bit high, the IBU's are double what's allowed, and you didn't use a kolsch yeast (its an ale yeast).

I'm not saying its a bad beer, but its not a kolsch, more like a highly hopped blonde ale.

What other grain could I use/substitute instead of the 10 lbs of Golden Promise? Also, is their a good substitute for for Magnum hops? There is no LHBS within 90 minutes from where I live.

I'd sub Pilsner for the Golden Promise and any smooth bittering hop for 38 or so IBUs at 75 mins.

You could also try all MO + the Munich (I'd then cut the Munich down to 2 Oz probably.)

Make sure you boil 90 mins and ferment cool.

Cheers!

How about using Nugget hops instead of Magnum? I have plenty of Pilsner malt on hand to crush and use. Any recommendations on fermentation temperatures for using S-04? I have not yet used this yeast.
