I've got about 5 minutes left in my mash on a Cologne Kolsch, my first of the year.

I don't believe I've ever had a kolsch and I don't know anything about the style. Midwest Brewing Supplies accidentally sent me two of these AG kits by accident... So I figure I'll get to know what a kolsch is!

I'm going to brew the Schwarzviertler that is in the current issue of BYO. I've been thinking about a Dunkel anyhow and 5% Rauchmalt sounds like it may be interesting.

I'm not going to follow their exact process. For example, I'm not going to do a 4 hour sparge. I'm still trying to decide if I want to do a decoction for the mash out. I probably will. If not, I may add some melanoidin malt to the grain bill.

I'm brewing the Stone 4th anniversary IPA from their recipe. Just waiting for it to warm up a bit outside.
