Kölsch-style ale...this one is brewed with 95% Viking pilsner malt, 5% Carahell, Edelweiss hop blend at 60, 10, and 5 minutes, and Lallemand's kölsch yeast. It turned out great, although I should have kegged it a touch sooner, because the hop character has faded a bit by this point (I brewed it three months ago, and I got busy, so it sat in the fermenter for close to two months). That aside, it's a really drinkable beer for a warm afternoon.

I've now done kölsch with both K97 and the Lallemand dry strains. I know some people are super negative on K97, but I'm...fairly OK with it. K97 definitely ferments a bit fruitier and takes a little longer to drop clear, which may or may not be what you want. The Lallemand version is almost too clean...I fermented it at 64 degrees, so it may have a little extra character at higher temperatures. In any case, I'm glad to have a more concrete mental comparison for the two.

All the details are on my blog: https://andybrews.com/2022/04/03/kolsch-simplicitas/

No sun today.  In fact it's snowing big flakes right now.  But I do have spring training baseball and I have pilsner made with Edelweiss hops and Omega 113.  Pardon the plastic cup.  I'm painting and doing some other projects at home today and I am far too clumsy and will kill one of my good glasses.  :D




Looking nice! And I bet it tastes even better...thanks to the good words from you and others, I bought some Edelweiss hop blend last year, and have really been loving it. I love it so much I've almost burnt myself out on it! The floral aroma is amazing. Time to rotate a few other hops in to keep the Edelweiss magic alive...

First pull of my imperial hazy piña colada ipa. Sort of a mature not overly sweet approach. I’m loving it!

A beer I made for a gluten intolerant coworker treated with enzyme to reduce the gluten that was a huge success! Pilsener, grits and honey with Apollo and Sorachi Ace finishing hops. It was delicious and 3.3% abv that didn’t last long.

Golden stout. I get a lot of people probably hate the idea of this but it turned out great. The homemade amber malt, toasted oat flakes, and roasted nibs made this a fun one to make.

Looks better than most of my beers that have been in the keg for a day.

No hate here for anything but the name, stouts have too be dark according to dogma. Then again who gives a rip what any beer is called so long as it’s brewed from the soul! Screw what anyone thinks, if it taste good drink it!

As a fan of German beers and lagers in general, learning about Edelweiss and using it on brewday is like the sun coming out after a week of clouds.  Always fresh and aromatic, it's another tool in our toolbox.  I just picked up some Hallertau Mitt, Tettnanger and Mandarina Bavaria from YVH and plan to use those in some upcoming lagers too.  I also MUST mention that some fresh Liberty I got from YVH were so good that I used some in a pilsner, "American Lager" and helles and they're spectacular.  American, yes but fresh and noble-like enough to use as you would the best German hops, IMO.  Cheers Andy.

A day without beer is like... just kidding, I have no idea.

Yeah I call it that just because of the commercial example I've had usually use terminology similar to that. I am in no way insinuating that it is actually a stout.

I have run across these in competitions before, when they state "white stout" but don't really go into any detailed description.  I don't know if I'm supposed to know, as if it is common knowledge, if I'm supposed to search the interwebs or what.  There's roast from coffee beans, right?  Are there spices like coriander and orange peel?
