Batch 5 (b) - Kolsch take 2

So the last Kolsch was delicious, but had some coloring issues and I have never been a fan of dry yeast (I prefer smackpacks) - so here's another take on the same recipe using pilsner dry malt extract to get a lighter color:

1.5 lb Weyermann's Pilsner Malt
0.5 lb Weyermann's Carafoam

4 lb Briess Pilsner DME

1.5 oz GR Spalt Select (60 minutes)

pitch with Wyeast 1007 German Ale smackpack

OG 1.o44
FG 1.012
ABV 4.2%

Now I just need to convert it to all -grain once the rest of my equipment arrives...
