IPA with WY2565
« on: June 01, 2016, 12:53:09 AM »
Was planning on brewing a Two Hearted recipe on Friday and I'll have some slurry from a Kolsch I did that I can pitch on.  Any thoughts on how an IPA would turn out with Wyeast 2565?

That yeast is great in hoppy beers imo. I have done a wheat IPA and a current APA with good success.

This has become one of my favorite IPA's, using Kolsch yeast.  I do switch out to Pils malt and a pound of Munich I.  FWH, ton of hops at whirlpool, and a ton dry hopping.  Very light and is a hit in the summer.  Give it a good try.

I think it would go very well, but you may want to bump up your fermentation temps to around 65F or so.

FWIW, I pitch this strain at 58F typically for kolsch's and ferment around 60F.

What's the thought about the higher ferm temp?  I was thinking doing the Kolsch yeast would make an IPA "too clean."

IMO opinion you want a clean yeast profile for an IPA to let the hops shine.

To provide a bit more character through fermentation so it doesn't across as too "pseudo-lager" like. I would think that 63-65F should get you there with this strain.

Kolsch yeast is actually one of the secrets to awesome IPAs.  I believe I learned this from a Basic Brewing podcast from several years ago, where they ran a yeast experiment, and Kolsch yeast was the hands down winner.

Many (most) AIPAs are made with 1056/001/S05 which is pretty clean as well. Clean yeast character means the yeast stays out of the way of the malt and hops.
