One of my favorite things is the yeast flocculates very well when the beer has fully attenuated so it's easy to make a beer of great clarity if you don't have a lot of dry hops in the fermenation vessel.

GREAT YEAST FOR A KOLSCH, AMERICAN PALE ALE, OR AMERICAN INDIA PALE ALE

By: Sean | Date: May., 23rd 2016 | Beer(s) Brewed: Kolsch, APA, IPA

 

This yeast is a favorite of mine. Not only does it make a very delicate Kolsch with accentuated hop bitterness. It really shines and makes great American Pales and IPAs, too. One of my favorite things is the yeast flocculates very well when the beer has fully attenuated so it's easy to make a beer of great clarity if you don't have a lot of dry hops in the fermenation vessel. These yeastie boys also get moving quickly. I've never had a lag greater than 4 hours with a fresh starter.

 

PERFECT YEAST FOR A VARIETY OF BREWS

By: Uncle Pauli | Date: Mar., 22nd 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Kolsch, Helles, Maibock, Noche Buena clone, Oud Bruin

 

I first used this with an Austin Homebrewing Texas Kolsch kit (which is my "house light"). Since I'm not equipt to lager, I've used this strain for Helles/Maibock, Octoberfest, and a Mexican Christmas (Noche Buena) clone. I've even used it as a starter for a Flemish Oud Bruin, added the "funk" after 1 week in primary. I guess you could say this is my "go to" yeast strain.

If you need a clean, clear yeast which accentuates your hop profile, or want to brew lager recipes at ale temperatures, this is the one for you!

As mentioned, it will start out vigorously and after a few days in primary, give off a nasty, sulfur smell...don't freak out...that will all clear up in the secondary and you'll be very happy with the results.

 

INCREDIBLY INTERESTING FLAVOR PROFILE

By: Aydin Manouchehri | Date: Dec., 18th 2013 | Beer(s) Brewed:Koelsch

 

Fermented an all Pilsner malt koelsh with this yeast. The result was a fascinating flavor. It really does taste like a hybrid between a lager and an ale. You get fruity undertones, reminiscent of apple and white grape, but finishes with that clean lager character with no phenolic or fussel bite. I am very intrigued, and will use again. Highly recommended for a a low IBU, low gravity, light color beer that my wife certainly appreciates.
