Full boil and followed all ingredients. Sat in primary for two weeks then bottled. Sat carbonating for 13 days. just tasted my first one and it is drinkable but don't know if it came out right.
Phenols can also be caused by wild yeast AKA infection. Happened to me with my first kolsch. The flavor became so bad it took on a throat spray taste. I don't believe it can be corrected. I attribute the cause of my infection to impatience. I must have opened the carboy and drew samples too many times. Didn't notice the problem until after legging and additional lagering in keg. Got worse with time.
