A German Lager/Ale hybrid style that is traditionally made in Köln, Germany. Ideally, this beer is fermented between 58 - 64F, followed by cold aging for several weeks. It is a very tasty summer brew! Blonde in color, with low hop bitterness, a smooth flavor; grab a few bottles and head for the pool! This kit includes 4 pounds of our Pilsner liquid malt extract for authentic pils type flavor and 2 pounds of golden DME to give a more complex malt flavor to this light beer style. Also comes with 4 ounces of Maltodextrin powder to boost mouthfeel.
