German Ale/ Kölsch Yeast White Labs
Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 65-69
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 72-78
Flocculation : Medium
Alcohol Tolerance : Medium 5-10%
Pitching/Fermentation : Does not do well under 62f unless already active
Notes : From a small brewpub in Cologne, Germany. Accentuates hop flavors, similar to White Labs 001. The slight sulfur produced during fermentation will disappear with age and leave a super clean, lager like ale.
Best Styles : Kölsch and Alt style beers. Good for light beers like blond and honey.
