LalBrew® Köln Kolsch Style Dry Yeast
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.

I just tried this Kolsch after about 4 weeks and it is very good. I will let it lager for longer next time and also temp control it as it tasted more like an Oktoberfest and it wasn't clear. This first batch was rushed for an Oktoberfest party and so I didn't lager it for the time it needed and I did not have the equipment to keep it cold in the fermenter. Will try it again soon.
Easy brew true to style and delicious
My brew fermented just fine and the result was a nice light refreshing beer.
Easy brew, great tasting lighter bodied beer. Excellent outside in the yard or by the pool!
