Cold crashing this brew tonight. I took a sample this weekend to see where it was at. The color was straw yellow but almost milky and completely opaque. We'll see how the cold crash effects this.

In the fridge, set to 40 for the next 24 hrs. Bottling tomorrow. Suggestions on how much priming (corn) sugar. I have a little over 6 gallons in the carboy.

I used US-05 and with a ton of 05 yeast in suspension it tastes astringent and overly bitter to me. Not all yeast taste good like the germen weizen/wheat yeasts. I don't mind it not being clear but sometimes too much yeast doesn't work for certain strains.

Brewing this today with an Amarillo / Citra mix instead of centennial. Smells good so far.

This will be the first 10 gal batch I make next month sometime after I get my keggle up and running. Splitting it into 2 batches with 2 different yeasts, the kolsch and some form of wheat yeast. I look forward to it!

Hey guys, I decided to make this recipe for my first all grain. I miss calculated somewhere and ended up with 4 gallons instead of the 6. How do you think it will turn out?

Just cracked my first bottle last night after about 10 days of conditioning and another few in the fridge.

A definite keeper, light tasting with citrusy flavors. I used the kolsh yeast and there is definitely no yeast taste. I will see how it tastes after another week of conditioning though. I didn't have the hops the recipe called for so I substituted 2 ounces of centennial for aroma. It does have a bit of a strong hoppy taste which isn't bad at all. I may scale back to one ounce on my next batch of this beer (this weekend). Overall I'm very pleased and I will be sure to always have lots on hand!!!
