Well your recipe looks like a good grain bill for an APA. The hops and ibu are missing however... Changing the pilsner malt for 2 row brought you more towards an APA.
Good luck.

The BM recipe was my first AG batch. It came out great and I'm definitely doing this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

I guess that my question would be why Kolsh and not a Munich Lager?

I did this recipe with both WL Kolsh and WL Munich Helles yeast. I found the Kolsh was sweeter but took longer to clear - the Helles is nice and malty, especially with a dual decoction mash. Technically the Helles yeast is more in line with the style but both were mighty tasty! If you are kegging I'd recommend either - if bottling I'd recommend the Helles yeast.

My understanding of kolsh is that they are all filtered.

quick question, this recipe requires a 90 minute mash and a 90 minute boil? How would I maintain temperatures in my mash tun over 90 min? I tend to find they drop about 5 deg over 60 min.

You can always pull a decoction to boil and add back the your mash tun or add additional hot water to increase the temp. If you're feeling adventurous this recipe is great via dual decoction mash.

I'm confused how 3 oz of Tett is only 16.4 IBUs. I put those number into Beersmtih and it says it would be 32. Am I missing something?

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot to cut the hops in half when I scaled down to 5.5 gallons. Good thing I caught that before brewing it..

I'm planning on doing this one this weekend with the posted grain bill and Notty. Needing a good summer drinker and this seems to be perfect!

BM - I've found Notty to be cleaner than WLP029 but never tried it in a Pilsner based beer. What are your thoughts on the trade offs when fermented 60 or so? I would think you likely end up with a little less breadiness character as wlp029 tends to give more of the bready/yeasty flavors, along with some fruitiness that wouldn't be to style, than the cleanness you get from Notty cold.

Forgot to add, planning on calling it "Notty as Helles" on the tapper - with credit to BM on the whiteboard.
