HiNot to hijack the thread, but make sure to lager for awhile. There's a big difference between the 1st month and the 2nd month.
Yeah, why do you want to dry hop a kolsch? The hops used for a kolsch are typically on the lower side of AA%. There aren't a whole lot of hops used either. I would skip dry hopping and save.it for you IPAs.atimmerman88 said:Did a quick search and didn't find anything...I'm brewing this this weekend, love EdWort's simple and delicious recipes.
I've got more boil capacity now, so I've started doing 6.5Gal batches and experimenting with 1Gal of beer just for fun.
Anyone have any thoughts on dry hopping a small batch with something like Nelson Sauvin or Nugget or Cascade?
My 1 gal side project of EdWorts Kolsch is ready for something.Why do I want to try? idk, just for fun to see what it'd be like. I've got a freezer full so I figured tossing 1/2 oz into 1Gal wouldn't be the end of the world
Do whatever you want, it's your beer.atimmerman88 said:My 1 gal side project of EdWorts Kolsch is ready for something.
Anyone wanna offer a suggestion?
Fruit? Strawberries or Blueberries?
Dry Hop?? 1/2oz Nelson Sauvin or 1/2 Cascade? or target or nugget?
I'm sure it will taste. You added a 1/2 oz for a one gallon...and Nelson Sauvin nonetheless. Good luck with it.atimmerman88 said:and I did. tossed in 1/2 oz of nelson sauvin into 1 gallon. We'll see how it tastes.
This isn't an ipa forum. I would say it's abnormal for this forum, a kolsch forum.JoesInBoston said:I've had thoughts about how dry hopping a Kolsch would come out, too. I am interested to hear how it goes, atimmerman88.
1/2 oz for a 1 gallon = 2.5 oz for a 5 gallon batch. I don't think that is too abnormal for this forum.
Keep us posted.
Sounds good. Let us know how it goes. I would make sure you.lager it. 2565 usually takes a.while to clear out.marinosr said:I can report good results without using a starter when pitching Wyeast 2565, although my original gravity came in low.
9 days from 1.044 to 1.010 @ 60F for six days, 66F for three days.
I'm really excited for this beer!
Kolsch is a beer where the yeast defines the style - this malt bill with 001 will be more like a blond ale, or cream ale or the like. It will be a fine beer, but not a kolsch
