From Cologne, Germany, the home of the Kolsch style comes this fantastic strain. A vigorous fermenter that throws off some sulfur during fermentation, German Ale/Koslch yeast cleans up and sulfur dissipates in the primary, producing beers that are lager-like in nature at the finish. This strain can accentuate hop flavors, making it perfect not only for Kolsch beers, but of light, hoppy beers of all styles. In addition to Kolsch, it is recommended for light German ales, Altbier, cream ales, American pale and brown ales, blondes, and honey ales. Very good for making beers with a lager-like cleanliness, even at ale temperatures.

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
