LalBrew™ Köln Kölsch Style Ale Yeast 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 β-glucosidase enzyme, Köln can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma.
Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentations will have a more fruit-forward ester profile.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
The pitch rate will affect the fermentation performance and flavor of the beer. For LalBrewTM Köln yeast, a pitch rate of 100g per hL of wort is sufficient to achieve a minimum of 1 million viable cells/mL. More stressful fermentations such as high gravity, high adjunct or high acidity may require higher pitch rates and additional nutrients to ensure a healthy fermentation.

LalBrewTM Köln may be re-pitched just as you would any other type of yeast according to your brewery’s SOP for yeast handling. Wort aeration is required when re-pitching dry yeast.
