Bruce’s Take on Kevin’s Kölsch
General Information
Method: Partial Mash

I liked the way Kevin Meves's recipe looked so I'm going to give it a try on a slightly bigger scale.

OG is a bit higher than what style calls for but we'll see how it goes.

Serving the first 5 gallons at the Barons Summer Day Camp.  Second 5 is still waiting for a home.

Well the full 5 gallons went so they must have liked it at the Barons Summer Day Camp.  We even took the keg apart to explain on how to replace all the seals.
