I am reworking a kolsch style beer from a recipe I brewed a few years back before I started brewing czech lagers. I only brewed it 3 times and I guess I didn't really care that much for it.

17 gallon fermenter/15 gallons kegged

RO Water, Soft Water Profile I use for my Czech Lager.
65% Pale
32.5% Bohemian Pilsner
2.4% Acid Malt
Hallertauer Mittelfrueh @ 75/60/30/15/0  24 IBU's
WY2565 ferment @ 58 and raise slowly to 67 over 5 days and let finish to est. 1.008

It was a kolsch-style weekend here, too!

5.5 gallon batch
Local tap water treated with lactic acid to knock out carbonates
95% Viking Pilsner malt
5% Carahell (Weyermann)
Edelweiss hop blend at 60/10/5, to hit 24 IBU
Lallemand Koln Kolsch Style Ale Yeast, fermented at 64 degrees

I did a 90 minute full-volume mash at 150 degrees, a 60 minute boil, and I hit 1.047 o.g. I've been playing with longer mash profiles on my Foundry, so this one is a bit of an experiment.

I like that recipe and think you are headed for a winner.  I've had great success with Deer Creek and those two malts in particular get used in heavy rotation for me.  Keep us posted, I would love to hear your take.

Will do.  Both Keystone and Deer Creek are about a 90 minute ride from my home.
So shipping is quicker, prices are reasonable.
I was impressed how Keystone heat sealed my two individual crushed grains batches.

I have forced PTO on Monday for MLK day.  I'm brewing a dunkle and dunkleweisen.  Five gallons each.

Two beers on a brew day is my norm.  It doesn't take too much more time to do two than to just do one.  I have my process down so I can keep something heating up/boiling and mashing at all times.  Cleanup happens all day as each tool is used for the last time.  All in all it's about 8 hours.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

Just mashed in my ‘Alabama 80/-‘. 1st brewday of 2022. It’s a ‘clean out the grain bin’ kind of recipe.

Doing a split-batch experiment to compare various yeasts on a Pale-Amber something...

56% BestMalz Heidelberg (Pilsner-esque?)
21% BestMalz Vienna
10% BestMalz light Munich
  9% Weyermann Dark Wheat
3.5% CaraPils (8L) Dingemans
0.5% flaked oats (Quaker)

Step Mashed @148 for 20 min, then @155 for another hour
boiled 45 minutes
hops= equal amounts Denali, Wai-Iti, and XJA-436 at 45min, 18min, 2min to approx 48 IBU total
OG:  1.063 [all]

This is a type of ale I've normally fermented with mostly Windsor + a bit of US05 or Notty, but I want to see how it tastes with some different yeasts, so I split the wort 7 ways:
   Diamond Lager @52
   S-189 Lager @52
   Lall-Munich Classic @56
   Lall-Abbaye @56
   Ferm BE134 @56
   Ferm US05 @56
   Lall-Verdant @60

I had originally started all 5 of the ale yeasts at 56F, but 12 hours in Verdant didn't seem to take off like the other 6 did, so I pitched a bit more Verdant in and moved it to a warmer location, where it seems to be catching up.  Honestly, I was a bit surprised (pleasantly) to see the BE-134 and Munich Classic start out so quickly at those temps.   I know that's a bit on the cold side for some of those yeasts, but I was curious to see how they'd behave under nearly identical process conditions.

All yeasts are first generation, from the packets.  Probably slightly over-pitched.

That’s awesome.  A tip of the cap to you!

Pub Ale 804

1048 OG
78% Maris Otter
12% Caramel 60
10% Light Munich
25 IBU of Cascade w/ equal doses at 30, 15, 5
Lallemand New England East Coast Ale yeast

I’m trying to develop a pub ale that I can keep on tap. Going for approachable malty with some good hop flavors. If someone asks me “What is ale?” I want to hand them this beer and of course I want a beer that I want to drink a lot of.

Just starting to heat strike water for an APA, bittering with Bravo and featuring Centennial. Will be fermenting with BRY-97.
Beer is my bucket list,
