I'm gonna brew up some Kolsch for later in the summer and given that the yeast takes forever to clear, do you think this would work.
I was thinking of laying the cornies on their side instead of leaving them upright so that they yeast didn't have so far to settle. I was thinking of taking the beer out through the "in" post if I left the beer sitting on it's side with the In post at the bottom and put an "Out" fitting on the gas line. Basically switch them around. My thought is to let it settle and then transfer under low pressure to a clean carboy when the beer is clear. Maybe too much hassle but I'd like to get a nice clear Kolsch.
