Out of curiosity, I kegged this about 1 week ago. It was lagered for 2 months. Will it hurt the

should be f...

Missed my mash temps big time. At mash out it was 143f. Ouch. I guess it will be even drier

of something a...

Being a huge fan of Kolsch, I plan to brew a batch based on this recipe in the next couple of
