I did, but it's sitting in a keg waiting to be carbed. Not sure if any good yet.

Just took this one to a homebrew club meeting. Got 4th out of 10. Here's the thing it was only force carbed for 14 days, so not sure it's still not too young for a kolsch. I've been taking sample tastes for about 5 days now and the sulfur taste people seem to worry about with this yeast is there but has gone down from day one to now. Regardless this recipe is a winner. I enjoy this beer quite a bit.

p.s. I single infused at 152

What is the gravity supposed to be after the first 14 days of fermentation? Will it drop down to the estimated 1010 after the 28 lager process? Reason I ask is because I took at gravity reading last night at day 14 and got 1020 @_@

Probably should be down to 1.010 by 14 days. I checked mine at 9 days and it was there by then. Maybe you could rouse your yeast, but I'm think 1.020 is probably your terminal gravity. Never hurts to wait another week tho.

I would wait another week and then check your gravity. You should be around 1.008.

I just brewed this batch again today using all saaz. I tastes my previous all saaz kolsch and loved it! Make sure to do a step mash.

Has anyone else tried this with all saaz?

This took a bit to clear in the keezer but it is the best tasting hot weather beer I have ever tasted.

It's absolutely a delicious beer.

This is my go to beer.

I have made it 6 times now and it is a real winner.

I follow the recipe with the following edits -
2 # wheat
.5 flaked barley
.25 acid malt

I use Tettanger hops and second addition of Saaz to keep the IBU at 21.

I use RO water with 4 grams of calcium chlroide added.

The local craft brewery uses WLP029 exclusively, so they are always gracious to give me some slurry.
I start that yeast/wort at 62-63 then by day2- usually I am up to 66 then by day 3 68 and day 4-5, I am D resting at 70-71.
I will leave it at 70 for about another 9-10 days, 2 weeks in primary, then crash the primary to 2 days then rack it to a keg with gelatin in the bottom.

When the main fermentation starts slowing down, usually 36-48 hours, start ramping up, dont be afraid about off flavors, etc.

I scored 40 and took 1st out of 23 beers in division 6 with this recipe and process.

Good luck and thanks to the OP for this great recipe.
Kevin
