NB Single Hop Un-Kolsch

Kölsch : All Grain : 5.5 gal

It comes across as a German pale ale with plenty of hop character. It was perfectly balanced and made you thirsty for more. The Kolsch II yeast fermented really fast.

I might not like normal Kolsch as much anymore...

This over-hopped Kolsch-style was super tasty. It took all the qualities from kolsch and applied an american hop palette. I was surprisingly good. The Kolsch II yeast blew the top off my fermenter and was done in a couple days. This was a contrast to the Wyeast Kolsch yeast that I just brewed with, which took 2 weeks for the krausen to drop. I dry-hopped it in the keg according to the instructions, and the first few pints were really hoppy and cloudy. When it cleared up it was delicate and crystal clear. Really good beer!
