Springtime Kölsch is the perfect brew to make as we leave the cool weather behind and lawns need mowing. This recipe creates a light and crisp ale that ferments at cooler temperatures, resulting in a lager like beer without the need for a dedicated lagering fridge (though we won't tell if you use one). Springtime Kölsch only gets crisper and clearer as bottles age in the fridge and the beer is an excellent hot weather drinker. Are you just starting your homebrewing adventure?

  • This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.

    Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.
