7.15 lbs. German 2-row Pils info
0.34 lbs. German Light Munich info
2.04 lbs. German Wheat Malt Light info
0.26 lbs. Weyermann CaraFoamŪ info
0.4 oz. Perle (Pellets, 8.25 %AA) boiled 60 min. info
0.4 oz. Hallertau (Pellets, 4.50 %AA) boiled 30 min. info
0.3 oz. Hallertau (Pellets, 4.50 %AA) boiled 5 min. info
Yeast : WYeast 2565 Kolsch info

So I am thinking about using Cascade instead of Hallertau. I want the citrus aroma with some bitterness. I would adjust the amounts added to stay with in the style guidelines.

I am pretty new at this, but if you think this is stupid, say so. haha.

Sounds like a fun change. Americanizing German beers is always cool with me

Not stupid, just don't call it a Kolsch.

Call it a Charleston or Georgia or (whatever city/state you're in) Kolsch

I object to your abject choice of hops.

Ahh, yeah, I forgot that Cascade is American. "Americanizing" is good word for it then.

So hop choice has a large role in what style of beer it is?

Yeah, it does. This is not a style nazi thing but in the case of a Kolsch it is not just a very specific style of beer, Kolsch is in fact an appellation. Using Cascade hops in a so-called Kolsch, while unfortunately not a Federal crime, does automatically make it a different beer. It's still a blond ale but it ain't a Kolsch.

ahhh that would make sense. I agree. So how is this recipe? Ok for a blonde? Should I just look at other blondes just to get an idea for hop schedule?


edit: I need a bittering hop. Like Northern Brewer.
