Brewer's Notes

BIAB recipe. Great beer easy to brew and tastes like a good clean lager. Basically used Kolsch yeast 2 #2575 which was not on the recipe list. Mashed 65.5 for 75 mins mash out 75.6 15 mins. Fermented at 18 deg for 3 weeks crashed chilled for 5 days and racked to secondary with gelatine as this yeast strain doesn't flocculate real well but has great lager qualities. Force carbonated and drank, sooo good!!

Its a simple recipe tastes great. The German pils would be better, that's all I had and the color was a bit light, just inside the style range.. I couldn't find much info on the style or recipes, so came up with this one based on what I could find, the hops are great!!
