My boss has requested a beer for a Memorial Day weekend party that he is going to. The only way I am going to get this beer fermented, kegged, and carbed was to brew it soon. Since I will be out of town this weekend I am brewing this beer on a weeknight…which I don’t do very often. With 2 kids I am usually in bed by 10 or so and exhausted. Luckily my wife stepped up extra tonight and I had enough kid free time to brew!
Since Kolsch is something that I really enjoy drinking (Schlafly Kolsch is my all time favorite) I am brewing a double batch. I am doing a single hop, 3 additions to this beer. Tettnang this year has a great aroma to it and am looking forward to making a few beers with it out of the pound I ordered. I missed my mash temperature the first go so my mash turned into an infusion mash. The first step was 144* for 20 minutes. The second step was 150* for 70 minutes.
