Kölsch Cup 2021 was an inaugural event hosted by Homebrew Happy Hour, which we proudly sponsored. 65 entries were accepted into the competition, then one entry was crowned the Grand Champion for the event. This is that recipe! A delicious version of a classic beverage - Brian's Kölsch is an incredible representation of this style.
Kölsch was Germany's response to the British Pale Ale, and originates from Cologne (Köln), Germany. Kölsch is defined by it's warm fermentation, followed by lagering at cold temperatures. Has a bright, slightly yellow tint very similar to a German Pale Lager. Typically, Kölsch beers are made with one type of pilsner malt.
