Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: kolsch white labs   
Yeast Starter: if you want   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.050   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 25   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: pale   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10-14 @64 F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 5-7 @50 F   
Tasting Notes: kolsch yeast at low temp is as good if not better than a lager yeast and quicker   

this beer is smooth, mellow, and malty. the low amount of boiling hops and the extensive late and dry hop additions give this a nicely rounded finish. the large amount of specialty grains keep it full bodied. the munich really comes through clean and bright while the subtle hop notes keep you swilling!

note: "garage" is my homegrown hops (they grow up the side of my garage)

this should be substituted with hallertaur or perle. any low alpha noble hop will do here. you can play with the amounts on the dry hop, depending on the alpha of the hop you use.

Ferment at 64 for 10 days then 50 for 5 days. Dry hop for last 3 days. it is very good after 4 days on the gas. within a 2-3 weeks, it is an amazing session beer and one i am very proud of. please brew and let me know your results.

it's not the blood you've spilled that gets you what you want, its the blood you share. friends, family, community: these are the most valuable things a man can have.
