Kolsch Style Ale Yeast

Regular price R 65.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

11 gram sachet.

LalBrew Köln® is ideal for brewing traditional Kölsch-style beers and other neutral ales.  The neutral character of this strain accentuates delicate hop aromas while imparting subtle fruity esters.  Through expression of a beta-glucosidase enzyme LalBrew® Köln can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentations will have more fruit-forward ester profile.

In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 20°C (68°F) LalBrew® Köln yeast exhibits:

  • Fermentation that can be completed in 7 days, a bit slower than most ale strains. This is
  • perfectly characteristic of this strain.
  • Medium to High Attenuation and Medium Flocculation
  • Neutral to slightly fruity and estery flavor and aroma
  • The optimal temperature range for LalBrew® Köln yeast when producing
  • traditional styles is 15°C (59°F)* to 22°C (72°F)
  • Lag phase can be longer compared to other ale strains, ranging from 24-36 hours

Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.
