i just did this one two weekends ago. I took a hydro reading on Sun and it is at 1.012. Did you do a diacetyl rest?

I've been looking for a good recipe for this beer. I've had this beer while over in Germany and brought some back. I love it. However, I havent made the jump to all grain yet. I still to extract brewing. Is it possible to get this recipe converted into an extract version?

Made this a couple of months ago. Not a big fan at first. Been in the keg around three months, and wow....very awesome brew if you give it the chance to age. Very nice. Thanks!!!

I've found that almost all beers benefit from aging with the exception of IPAs (although even those benefit, they just lose some hop aroma but gain other flavors).
I made a lagered kolsch a few months ago, and figured id better drink it because it wasn't going to get better than it was.
Now im hoarding the last two bottles in the beer fridge.

I know you were probably being sarcastic but most people don't know that almost all homebrew improves to at least the 6 month mark

LOL. Oh aging for me isn't a problem....Lagered the beer for a 5 weeks before putting on the gas, and then 3 months in the kegger.

I'm glad that you gave credit for this recipe to Tess and Mark Szamatulski. They wrote this clone recipe and it's in their "Clone Brews" book. Oh wait, you didn't give credit! Plagiarism aside, this is a great beer.
