Recipe by Beewrangler63 Clone Beer All Grain 5.50 Gallon Batch 90 Minute Boil 72% Efficiency Created 6/29/2018 Updated 7/12/2018 No Reviews Comments














While in New Orleans this past spring, I ran across and enjoyed this beer made only for sale in Louisiana. I liked it so much, that I began a mission to try and replicate it when I got home. With the help of some Louisiana homebrewers, who gifted me a few bottles to use as my control, I took to the brew kettle and fermenter. I brew BIAB, and this is more a hybrid beer than it is a kolsch. I mash with 7.5 gallons and sparge with the remaining 2 gals that total mash volume calls for. My brewhouse efficiency is 72%. For simplicity, the hops equals 10 grams. I use Wyeast Kolsch 2565 for this brew. I use a starter, and cool the wort to 65F, pitch and let it rise back to 68F and hold there for 3 weeks. I secondary and lager at 35F for another 4 weeks. I bring it back up to room temperature for a day and then prime (2.7 vol) and bottle. Bottle conditioning for about 14 days seems to be about right. I use RO water and my water additions for the 9.5 gals are : 2.6 g Gypsum, 1.5 g Epsom Salt, 1 g Kosher Salt, and 5.7 g of Calcium Chloride.
