This is my first beer I've posted on here as an official recipe. The name is pretty self explanitory. A(merican) K(olsch) - 47 (ibu), and yes I realize its a bit oxy-moronic.
I dont know or care whether its true to any style, it turned out amazing and will be brewed here every spring for a great summer beer. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
