Thanks so much for this recipe. It tastes great, and is mild enough to be popular with the friends. This is going to turn into a regular, as I can't keep it around very long.

Okay, let's say that someone loves this beer. Let's also say that all of said person's friends love this beer. Let's say that said person has moved on to all grain, and has swore off partial mash recipes, still wanted to make this fantastic beer, but didn't know how to convert it to an all grain recipe. What should said person do?

Can someone please help a relative newb remake this excellent beer as an all grain. My friends are bugging the crap out of me about this stuff, but I am all out.

Thanks!

At 70% efficiency, I would say go with:
8lb pilsner malt
1 lb vienna malt
1lb wheat malt
Mash at 150. Boil 90 minutes to drive off DMS.

Glad to hear you like this one. I only have a couple bottles left. I plan to make it again later in the winter. It is much hoppier than a traditional Kolsch and I have been tempted to change the hop schedule, but I think I will give this one another go as is then make changes if needed.
