Simple Saaz Blonde

Ale - Kölsch
All Grain
* * * * * 8 Votes

Brewer's Notes

It's not a Kolsch!!!, but Blonde Ale is not in the drop down menu...
Munich I is actually Biscuit malt!
Mash at 65'-66' for 90 mins. 90 min boil. This received some recipe requests after the 2011 Sandgroper's case swap, so here it is. I have also brewed this with all Cascade and all EKG, both versions have been crackers. Low malt, low hops, enough body to keep it interesting and a dry finish. Perfect for Summer. Ferment with Nottingham at 15' for 12 days. Crash chill for a few days and keg. OG- 1043 FG 1007

How do you think it would be with some flameout or dry hops?

Interested in trying this one. Although i don't have biscuit malt i do have the munich 1 that you listed?

To be honest, mate the reason why I started brewing this one was for simplicity. As a hop head I do find it very hard to add just one or two hop additions, but I'm really liking drinking some low hopped styles at the moment instead of my usual 50+ IBU APA's :) In saying that, I reckon flameout hops would be definitely be good.

The munichI would be good I think, maybe up it to 300gms or so...?

Cheers.

Drinking this atm, a beautiful drop.

Simple and tasty, i did it No chill and just dropped all the additions back 10mins. I'm sure it's more bitter than you intended judging my other bers i've done with the same method, but it's a snorter.

Non homebrew lovers like it too :D

Cheers.

Cheers

Do you have any biscuit, Taz, or are you aiming to use the munichI as a sub?

Either way, I reckon it will drink nicely. Though the biscuit does work really well in a grain bill like this.
