STRAIN: 2565 KÖLSCH™
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
This strain is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. Beers will exhibit some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile. It produces low or no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast may also be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers and ferments well at cold 55-60°F (13-16°C) range. This powdery strain results in yeast that remain in suspension post fermentation. It requires filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers.
Good for styles:
Kölsch, American Wheat Beer, Alternative Grain Beer, Cream Ale, Berliner Weisse, Biere De Garde, Altbier, International Amber Lager, Fruit Beer, Wheatwine.
