Brewing a Kölsch, and looking for input. Especially on the second hop addition. It buys me only 2 IBUs, but wondering if it will make the beer better. Trying to keep it simple, and all the grains I was looking to use required mashing, so no steeping grains here. thanks.

Is this for a 5 gallon batch?
If so, according to style, OG is low~1.029, IBU's low~21, SRM a little high~5.8.

If you want a nice light beer with low bitterness then go for it!

I'd push the boil hops to about 1.5oz and add another 2lbs of pils extract for ~28IBU's and ~1.043OG.

But that is me!

Looks good either way! Good luck and post results!

Oh yeah, 3 gallon batch, sorry

Rather 3 boil, 2.5 to bottles.
