This recipe produces a rather nice rendition of the traditional beer brewed in Cologne, Germany. A "hybrid" consisting of fermentation with an ale yeast followed by lagering to temper the fruitiness, the end result is in the best "altbier" tradition. Kölsch-style beers are best enjoyed young; the fruitiness and slightly floral aroma will diminish over the course of 6 months.
