Orange Kolsch (AG/EX)
 
3 Attachment(s)

I promised myself that I would not post this recipe until it had been kegged, carb’d, chilled and served to my “audience”. I tapped it last night, sampled and served to my friends & family (mostly female) and it got a unanimous thumbs-up.

I love the overall light taste of Kolsch but I hate dealing with Kolsch yeast (takes forever to drop and really needs long, cold conditioning). I love the crisp citrus and coriander of Belgian Wits, but wanted a variation that didn’t rely on a 50% flaked wheat grain bill.

I used a typical Kolsch grain bill with some flaked wheat for a nice lacy white head and a normal Kolsch hops bill, tamed down a bit to compensate for the spiciness that the orange peel and coriander would add. I then went with a simple dry american ale yeast for a bit crisper finish than the Belgian wit offers.

The taste is fantastic. Crisp, mild and a definite orange undertone. The coriander is subtle enough that it simply lends some “snap” to the beer. Between 4.5% and 5%, this makes a great (fast) summer time ale.

If you’re looking for something the gals will enjoy, I highly recommend this recipe. For me, it’s going to be a house staple.

Notice the higher malt profile...this is offset by the coriander and orange peel.
