I’m looking at brewing a Kolsch in the next week or so and was wondering what you all might suggest for boil times. I’ve read that 90 minutes helps to reduce DMS –- do any of you adhere to this?
Also, I’ll be brewing the NB’s Kolsch AG kit, but decided to swap out the German Pils for NB’s Kolsch Malt, just to see what the result would be (I know that it will likely come out darker than with the German Pils). Have any of you used this malt?
Lastly, I plan on fermenting at ~60* and then lagering for 4-6 weeks before bottle conditioning for 4 weeks, which would bring it online in June. Does this timeline sound reasonable?
