    In January we brewed a traditional German Kolsch.  In designing the recipe I pulled inspiration from three different sources.  Each source advised different specialty malts and percentages, so I averaged it all out.  I have typically used Mt Hood hops in previous home brew versions and Fermentis K-97 German Ale. Mt Hood hops weren’t available, so it made sense to use Hallertau Tradition hops.
