I want to thank you Theoman. I just moved to Germany 4 days ago(USAF member). I created a login for Brauwland and I can almost get everything I'll need.
Had you not mentioned them almost 4 yrs in this thread, my search on this forum would've ended pretty quickly without any results.
I think you're much better off using a lager strain that tolerates warmer temps than using an ale strain. WY2124 or Saflager 34/70 will get you closer than any ale strain, even pushing the low 60s for fermentation temps. The yeast character is distinctly different between an Alt, Koelsch or lager strain.
Google Peter Rheinhart's pizza dough recipe...
"Around Brussels/Brugge in 80 Beers" - I bought the Brussels version before our trip and its perfect for traveling without a tour group.Yep, great book. There should be a new edition (of the Brussels version) coming out this fall. There are some fantastic bars that have opened since the last one, not to mention a few new noteworthy beers.
Get used to not having nearly the selection in yeast that you have back home. Brouwland carries the largest variety of Wyeast. White Labs from what I've seen can only be got from the Swedes or the Danes. Brouwland also does not handle their stock very well. I have had several bad or expired yeast batches from them.
You could try making a thin slurry of yeast to add to each bottles.
