"Brewed an excellent and clear cream ale with this yeast"
By: Ulrich | Date: Jan 1, 2019 | Beer(s) Brewed: Cream ale
The cream ale that I brewed with this kölsch yeast turned out really great. The bottle conditioned beer took about 4 weeks to referment and carbonate in the bottle. The resulting beer is very clear and comes out of the bottle without any yeast for a very clear serving. I am really happy how the beer tastes and how good the beer cleared up. I will certainly use this yeast again. The beer tastes very fresh with a nice tingle in the throat and the malty backbone of the beer comes through nicely. All the flavours of the beer appear very clear, lively, distinguishable and harmonious at the same time. A real pleasure to drink this beer that leaves me with the question should I drink another.
"Best Hybrid Yeast that LOVES near Lager Temps!"
By: bloombrews | Date: Nov 10, 2018 | Beer(s) Brewed: Kolsch, American "Lager", Brown Ale......
White Labs Kolsch yeast will tear through your first pitch, as long as you follow there "recommended" temp range and always oxygenate the Wort.
After harvesting a HUGE amount of yeast from the Conical, I pushed the Fermentation "Guideline" down to 58 F....Blew off in only 4 hours!
Harvested the unbelievable amount of yeast ( 2 Quarts from a 15 gallon Coni)
The 3rd pitch was a 70% Briess/30% Flaked Rice----Now I dared to push it into "Lager" territory....And YES, it smashed through the Wort in only 4 days at 56 F.
I did ramp up the temp after 4 days, seeing the "EG" at 1.009 ? I thought this was an error...NIET !
Pitched a 4th. time... with now 30% flaked Corn....BAM !
The only yeast I ever saw smash through Wort (But NOT at near Lager Temps) is the Weinstephener Hefe Weitzen Yeast.
Any very clean beer you want - Kolsch, American "Lager" or any clean CLEAN ester throw you want....
BUY IT !
"Simply Great in an American Wheat Ale "
By: Dean Smith | Date: Oct 17, 2018 | Beer(s) Brewed: American Wheat Ale
I've used this strain in several attempts in my quest to perfect an American Wheat Ale. The crisp dry finish & the mild red apple esters this yeast leaves behind match beautifully with wheat-driven tartness & classic "C" hops, particularly Cascade & Centennial. With a bit of cold conditioning post-fermentation, I'm left with a nice clear beer that I can drink all day...
