All Grain Recipe: Kölsch


Here’s an example of what we like to drink when the sun’s out – an elegant session beer with a new world hop twist.

Nelson Sauvin works really well, as does Mandarina Bavaria, but this one uses Amarillo for a zesty orange finish. Don’t be tempted to up the hops – the finish should be quite subtle and clean.
