Description

This strain is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. Beers will exhibit some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile. It produces low or no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast may also be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers and ferments well at cold 55-60°F (13-16°C) range. This powdery strain results in yeast that remain in suspension post fermentation. It requires filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers.

Origin:
Flocculation: low
Attenuation: 73-77%
Temperature Range: 56-70° F (13-21° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 10% ABV

Styles:
American Wheat or Rye Beer
Berliner Weisse
Bière de Garde
Cream Ale
Düsseldorf Altbier
Fruit Beer
Kölsch
Northern German Altbier
Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Good Yeast for a Lager like beer using ale yeast
Very active yeast. It blew the cork out of my fermentor in the first 18 ish hours. Brew smelled wonderful when I checked it and found the cork out. Still to taset the brew. That is still a ways away.

This is a handy yeast to have in your fridge.
This yeast is my go to one. It's good for several recipes. I like the flavour in my Kolsch.

Great yeast!
I used this to make a Kolsch and it was probably my best beer ever! I'll definitely buy this again. Cheers!

I love this yeast
Don't really care if it doesn't flock out completely. It's got a great clean and wonderful taste and character for a true Kolsch yeast! I always try to have this now ready to go.

Response from MoreFlavor
Forgot to add that when I use this, use a blowoff as it's a very active yeast!

Worked for me
I brewed a Kolsch and used a starter of Wyeast 2565. This yeast performed well at 63 degrees during fermentation. I warmed it up to 68 to finish out and it cleaned up well. Nice flavor profile and I would use it again.
