OYL-017

Kolsch I

An enthusiastically top cropping, lager-like ale strain from Köln, Kolsch I is lightly fruity, crisp and clean, and accentuates hop flavors well. This strain can be fermented colder than Kolsch II (OYL- 044), and is powdery and slow to drop clear (filtering recommended). Kolsch II (OYL-044) is a little easier to manage. Sulfur disappears with age.

Omega Yeast’s metabolically healthy cells produce vigorous fermentation and consistent results for Probrewers and Homebrewers alike.
