Default All-Grain - Kustom Kolsch

Recipe Type: All Grain

Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 @ 60

Tasting Notes: Sweet yet crisp with a good head, a variation of the NB version

I am looking for some input on my recipe, I am deviating from the NB recipe that I love by adding 1lb of wheat malt in place of 1lb of the pilsner malt to give it a little more mouth feel and head. What do you think? I plan to brew this next week and will update this post.

Please let me know what you think!

The wheat is a great addition. This beer will be good, just ferment it as cold as you can. That yeast loves it at 55*

I plan to let it ferment 60* at the warmest, I have used it before so I know how good it can taste when fermented lower on the acceptable scale.
