Default Brewing Kolsch

Back to brewing.
Money got tight, I changed jobs, now I'm brewing again!
I'm brewing AHS Kolsh from an extract kit. Since I'm 30 min. into the boil, I'd better get back in there. Just wanted to make a note of the brew date and celebrate my ability to start brewing again!

HAppy return to brewing. Are you using a Kolsch liquid yeast or dry?

Welcome back to the fold!

I just brewed 10 gallons of Kolsch as well, great lawnmower beer.

Cheers!

Yep, I was thinking I needed something like a Kolsch for the rest of summer.

Drinking a Kolsch right now. Good to see you back to brewing.

Welcome back! My Kolsch is about 10 days out, then keg time. Had to empty one of the 8 fermenters.

I brewed a Kolsch, 2 weeks into keg so far for aging. I used the Wyeast Kolsch yeast maybe I might try the white labs next.

I haven't started kegging yet. but I'd like to when I get in a place with more space for the equipment. I like the White Labs yeasts that I've used so far (in my very limited experience). It would be good to see a comparison of one beer brewed with 2 different yeasts, all else being equal.

Oh, I'm racking to secondary today. Primary fermentation didn't stop until about day 11, so I went a full two weeks in primary. It's pretty. :-)
