Due to German Purity Law a German Kolsch may only contain barley malt, wheat malt, hops and water. The honey flavours must come from the grain malt.  A European malt known as 'Brühmalz' or as we call it "honey malt" is known for its intense honey like malty sweetness. Pilsner malt is a two row Barley malt base used to create a light golden colour  and a delicious biscuit flavour. Vienna influences the colour and adds a slight nutty aroma. Purity Laws allow Kolsch to include wheat malt as Kolsch use top fermenting yeasts. The wheat malt is good for beer head and colour.  Hopped with German Perle hops as a first addition: a hop known for its notes of mint,pine and spice and ideal for Kolsch. Then Hersbrucker with aroma notes: grassy, tea, and floral. Also well suited to Kolsch.  Together they create a simple, pleasant German style Kolsch with honey malt flavour notes.
