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.
Temperature Range: 56-70F (13-21C)
Alcohol Tolerance: Approximately 10% ABV
American Wheat or Rye Beer
Bière de Garde
