Planning on brewing a refreshing summer brew now that the snow is starting to melt. The recipe is based on a Kolsh style beer. Critique this if you please...

IBU 30
ABV 4.7%

Fermentables

US 6-Row Malt 2lb 0oz 29.1 % 0.7 In Mash/Steeped

Hops
Variety Alpha Amount IBU Form/When
NZ Nelson Sauvin 12.5 % 0.50 oz 19.1 Loose Pellet Hops (60min)
NZ Nelson Sauvin 12.5 % 0.25 oz 7.4 Loose Pellet Hops (30min)
NZ Nelson Sauvin 12.5 % 0.25 oz 3.5 Loose Pellet Hops (10min)

Danstar Nottingham Ale Yeast (Dry)

The malt bill should be similar to a typical Kolsh, with the sugar added to increase alcohol and dry the brew out, and the small amount of acid malt to make it more refreshing. Wanted to use the Nelson Sauvin to learn about the hops. Using the Nottingham due to its clean flavor profile.

Not necessarily true to style, but if I wanted that I would buy some from the store.
