I just made a kolsch with 80% Premium Pilsner Malt. The color seems to be a little darker than I would expect. The recipe called for German (2row) Pilsner Malt. Is there any difference between the two? Can't find much info on the web about it.
Various pilsner malts do vary in color but the differences are very small. A 10% Munich addition is going to darken the color. It's your choice but a traditional Kolsch has no Munich malt and that alone would make it lighter in color.
