Make this your go-to yeast for Kolsch.

Wyeast (Kolsch) - 2565 Liquid Yeast is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. This yeast contributes some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile, and no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast is also well suited for the quick-lager method. It ferments well at cold 55-60F (13-16C) range. Because this is a powdery strain of yeast, some of it will remain in suspension post fermentation, and will need to be filtered out if you want a crystal clear beer.

Attenuation: 73-77%

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

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.
