Grain Bag Too Small

Went to start brewing my Kolsch and I find out the grains won't fit in the tiny grain bag that came with the kit. Dumped some grain so I could tie a knot in the bag. Not a good start. If I find another kit with a bag that's too small, I'll start ordering my kits elsewhere

Tasty Kolsch!

Turned out great. It probably fermented a bit warmer than what is suggested, but turned out delicious anyway.

Haven’t brewed it yet


I really am confused by some of the other reviews. This beer was excellent right out of the secondary and never tasted bitter. I used the kolsch yeast and fermented at 58 deg. F. I added a diacetyl rest at the end of fermentation which I really have no idea as to whether that was needed or not. I also used both Irish moss and gelatin. The gelatin caused the bottle conditioning to go long, it required a solid 3 weeks to carbonate. The end result is absolutely excellent beer, perhaps my all time favorite. I am disappointed that I can only make this one in the winter when my crawl space is cool enough!!!!
