Notes


Mash at 64c for 90 minutes. Longer mash required for lower temp. Mash out at 72c. Boil with lid off for 90 minutes. Add hops at set times.
At flameout, immediately whirlpool and chill wort. Aerate and pitch rehydrated dry yeast.
Ferment at 15c for approximately 4 days then increase to 18C until finished. FG should ideally be 1:008 or less for Kolsch to ensure dryness. Chill to 2c. Add gelatin, leave for further 2 days. Transfer to keg via filter and force carbonate at 2.5 vol. Lager at 2c for 3-4 weeks.
