WLP029 - German Kolsch Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
WLP029 German Kolsch yeast comes from a small brewpub in Cologne, Germany, and works great in Kolsch and Alt style beers. Known for accentuating hop flavor and bitterness. Good for light beers like blond ale and American wheat. The slight sulfur produced during fermentation will disappear with age and leave a super clean, lager like ale. We have fermented this yeast at 58F and had great success. If you ferment this strain in the high fifties we recommend you make a yeast starter. The cooler ferment produces less esters (fruit character) and makes a really clean kolsch almost taste like a standard American lager. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary.
Fermentation Temp: 65-69
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast, particularly during warmer months and for orders shipped to warm climates.
