Drinking some Kona tonight. I need to brew this soon, though I haven't any MO.

I saw this posted a while back but didnt see an answer. For a 5.5 gallon batch does everything get cut in half, including the hops?

This will only be my 3rd batch and I haven't had to scale any recipes yet!

If the original is 11, yes. Halve everything.

Hi BM,
After coming across and loving Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale while visiting CA and then finding your recipe, I've brewed a slight variation three times since July 2012.

The modifications were Rahr Pale Ale Malt rather than MO, using good German Munich II (Best or Weyermann) and adding a touch of CaraRed Malt to go along with the Honey malt to darken the beer up a bit. I also used the Kolsch II yeast that was out at the time from Wyeast rather than the regular Kolsch and fermented at 62F. I must say the honey malt is what gives this a sweeter taste.

I was pretty surprised when my APA entry took 1st Place in the 2012 Schooner comp (Racine Wisconsin) out of 26 APAs. It has since become my house Pale Ale.

Now I just got in a fresh load of hops and plan on making a few APA batches to test out some other hop combos using the same base AG malt/yeast recipe and early hop additions but try some other late combos like Amarillo and Mosaic or Citra.

Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Hi BierMuncher,

New to AG, excited to try this recipe. My LHBS does not have Kolsch, but has the Wyeast 1010 as a sub. Do you think this would be ok?

Thanks!

Not to hijack, I am sure BM has mire to say, but if memory serves I used us-05 on this with great results...

Mine is the darker one, but taste was spot on, slightly sweeter if I recall.

No. That is an american wheat beer yeast, out of character for this. I would look for wyeast 2565 if you want a kolsch style pale ale.

I have used US05 (dry) a few times for this recipe and I recommend it. It is perfect for pale ales.
