Boy I forgot all about the nuances of the Wyeast Kolsch yeast. I mashed in the first effort way too high for whatever reason and I had to re-cock and try again (luckily Northern Brewer is only 5-6 blocks away). I nailed my numbers the second round and put 5 gallons in the fermenter. I broke my flask the night before making a starter so I ended up doing a 2 liter starter in a jug instead of on a stir plate. It didn't matter, fermenting at 68 degrees resulted in a volcano less than 24 hours later. I hooked up a blow-off tube and she's chugging away now. I really liked how this one smelled going in so I can't wait to give it a try in 5-6 weeks.

Wow! This one's a crowd-pleaser. Nicely toasty/malty but with a good hoppy zing. Definitely the best AG I've done to date. I love it, SWMBO loves it. Not going to last...sigh.

I haven't tried this from the store yet. I always go for the kona coconut brown instead.

Hey biermunch any chance you can created a clone for that?

How did you build your stir box?

Pretty simple pine box from Michael's, $2 90mm computer fan, & a pack rare earth magnets online. I also had a low voltage (7.5V) charger I stripped to power the fan. I get about a 3/4 inch dimple in the wort, agitates enough for me. I love not having to go by & shake the thing all day.


Screws were covered with JB Weld for wood and sanded. Needs paint I think...

Where the fan and magnets meet the underside lid of the box.

Well BierMuncher, you've done it again. This and your Centennial Blonde recipes have been two of my very favorite ales to date and I'm going to put this one right back in rotation. I had some crush related efficiency issues and ended up with a bit lower gravity than I had hoped, but nonetheless the flavor and hops strike a perfect harmony and my batch has only been in the bottle for 10 days. Another week should really let this beer shine!
