Im looking to make a Kolsch for the SWMBO in the summer. I was thinking since she loves Pyramids Apricot Ale- that a Peach Kolsch would be something shed like. The goal is a 6% abv kolsch with good peach flavor undertone thats not over powering like Pyramids Apricot.

I was thinking
Batch size 5gal
9lbs either Pils or 2row
1lb wheat malt
1lb Vienna malt or Carapils

Hops:

1.5 oz Hallertau for 60 minutes
1 oz Saaz (3.5% aa) for 30 minutes
1 oz Saaz (3.5% aa) for 5 minutes

Saflager S-23
1 tsp irish moss - added at cool down
1 can Oregon Peach Puree added to the secondary


Ive got 3.5 months to get this together and cannot load beersmith right now.

You only want about 5% of wheat and 5% of munich, but i would think the vienna would work ok.

I like the saaz but only do a 60 min bittering and to the tune of 21 or 22 IBUs.

This way will get you a traditional kolsch that you can add the peach too.

I have a kolsch fermenting away right now as I type. My second make of this recipe and i can imagine the added peach to it. I think you may have a good beer.

The most important ingredient for a Kolsch is authentic liquid yeast from Cologne, Germany, without it one cannot truly make Kolsch.

Use whatever you can get your hands on, it's just that the yeast does make a difference with this style.
