I’m using 029 in the 1st Kolsch I’ve ever made. I fermented In the high 50’s (low, I know, but I HATE esters), and it’s at 1.014 after a week. Will I get any fruity flavors if I bump it up to 72 degrees (room temp)?
as always, thank you for your first hand advice!
Back with another Kolsch video - This time its A grain to glass video of my Kolsch Brewed with my homegrown hops.
I also need to get back to what a Kolsch is and what a Kolsch isn´t. Hope you guys enjoy it / Cheers DrHans
I made what was called a "Honey Kolsch" the other day, but I fermented it with US-05. It tastes pretty good, but I don't think it would be right to call it a Kolsch...

I'm working on making a Kolsch and would like to get some advice on a proper water profile.
This is my tap water profile:
I'm using Bru'n Water software to make my adjustments. I see there is a Cologne profile but I also see Martin...
I recently went to Köln, and I really liked the small kegs they use to serve Kölsch. The pittermännchen (sometimes called party kegs, party Fass, party barrels, Kölsch Fass, etc) typically come in 10-30 liter sizes. I would really like to have a 10L one, but they're extremely difficult to...
I brewed 5 gallons of Kölsch, and filled them into the five 1 gallon carboys I had on hand. The last one I only managed to fill halfway so I topped off with RO water figuring it would all even out when I kegged (the original gravity was on the high side) I tasted the one I topped off, and it...
Long story short I ordered yeast (WLP029) from Homebrew Supply, and FedEx took the scenic route to get here. After 5 days I got my yeast. The cold pack, and vial were very warm. But I decided to give it a shot anyway. Made a starter, pitched it in, here we are three, and a half days later...
Just when I thought I had my HERMS system down solid, I made a mistake.
I was planning on mashing my Koslch at 150F for 90 minutes. I set my temperature to 158F knowing I get about an 8F drop. So, I add my grist and got to 150F on the button. BUT...I forgot to lower the temp immediately. The...
I am planning to brew my fourth batch this weekend. I will be making a Kölsch but I plan on dry hopping it. Any suggestions on what hop I should use? Has anyone had success dry hopping a Kölsch before?
This is a great beer for the summer. Crisp and clean, a little grainy, with pleasant hop aroma. It's a thirst quenching brew and may have a white wine character depending how you treat the yeast. Basically, it's a Kölsch with balls or a pale ale with with a little refinement. Goes down easy...
Ok this is my first 10 gallon batch and I'm pretty excited. I just scored a converted keg on craigslist and I'm gonna do a ten gallon brew using my 48QT cooler as a mash tun. I want to make a nice refreshing wheat beer that will be good drinkin on hot summer days. Here's my recipe:mug...
