This is one beer I need to try my hand at. I think this is a beer you either really love or really hate. Is this a tried and true recipe?

Just checked the Wyeast website, and it's now listed along with all their other full time yeasts! WOO HOO!!!!
Maybe an APA to start.
goes well with a simcoe/amarillo pale ale, I can attest!
No kidding.....as I said, Ayinger is my personal "Holy Grail". Guess I'd better look at the website!
I may give that a shot, just don't tell Keith
Yeah that wlp530 is one of my favorite Belgian strains, but man does it ferment VIOLENTLY!
That's definitely not my favorite yeast for the style, but its real sluggish below 58F. I'd recommend fermenting warmer & lagering vs. forcing a slow, cold ferment. Just my 2-cents!
+1 to Blatz comments. Kolsch has a distinctive, yet subtle, flavor to it. Kind of wine/chardonnay like finish that I haven't ever tasted on any other beer style. That's the key between it tasting like a kolsch and simply being a blonde ale that is called a kolsch. Too many brewpubs call their blondes "kolsch".
