This recipe is a clean and crisp pale ale that highlights subtle aroma hop flavours in the style of the ever popular Furphy Ale. A refreshing beer inspired by the German Kolsch style of ale that is sure to be a popular session beer. Your mates will be telling tall tales about this brilliant ale although contrary to the name, they will all be true – not a furphy in sight! This recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops, wet malts and steeping grains for the beginner or intermediate brewer who wants to take their tin kit brewing to the next level. Enjoy!
