A variation on our extremely popular Kolsch recipe with the addition of honey and a new yeast strain for a lighter body and flavor. Like our original Kolsch kit, this recipe features a pale color, light body, and smooth mouthfeel. Honey adds subtle floral character and lightens the body by fermenting to dryness. Really nice as a summer brew for barbecues and picnics, or to wean your friends off watery mass-produced lagers.
If you enjoyed Honey Bee Ale, you'll love this kit!

I thought this would be a great brew!!! I follow the directions and I used everything in the lit. I got a watery 3.0 ABV beer. I have been brewing awhile and I expect to get what I purchased. But 3.0 ABV is not whats advertised and its not what I purchased.
Good lager with a creamy taste with hint of honey. Hops a little strong for my taste, but will definitely make again with milder hops.
Honey Kolsch Beer Kit
Cleared up nicely with Irish Moss, clean taste. Will brew again.
I had previously made a Kolsch Beer Recipe Kit that did not include the honey. We enjoyed that Kolsch more that this one with honey but they are both good.
