I'm not familiar enough with a few of the malts to give an overall recipe critique but if you
haven't used the lemon extract before I would probably leave it out. Maybe not all brands are

I use the white labs Kolsch in my Oktoberfests and they don't dry out too bad, I usually

I think you'll still be fine with that small amount of Pilsner, it should be a tasty beer

I use one of the small single-burner propane stoves that connect direct to a small disposable
propane cylinder, like for camping. It's the perfect size to store away and brings anything in
