My second batch ever was an extract Kolsch. I thought it turned out excellent. As long as you
are getting fresh extract (LME MUST be fresh!!), I think you can make beers that rival partial
mash and al...

Extract can work f...

Need to brew this one again. This was my most well-received batch and I think I have almost all

I used to live in Aachen, near Cologne for 3+ years. I make my kolsch with 2565 at 60 for 2

With any luck, I hope to do an IPA, a stout, an Octoberfest and a Mike's Hard Lemonade Clone.

I really enjoyed the white wine flavors I did pick up, so that is encouraging as well. Thanks
ColoHox. This has been reassuring. I'll have to pick up some wheat DME to add to the mix and
give it a sho...

Kolsch is pretty similar to a mild pils or blonde, do you like those styles of beers? I don't
