Kolsch and Ale yeast combination
« on: August 30, 2020, 03:05:15 pm »
So... I was brewing back to back and accidentally pitched 1/3 of a packed of Kölsch yeast in my ale. In a freak out moment opened the ale yeast and added 2/3 of the packet to the wort.... and than decided to add the leftover of the Kölsch yeast (2/3) and ale yeast (1/3) to my Kölsch wort 😩😩😩
I feel like and idiot and have no idea what to expect.... any thoughts ??

Most Kolsch yeast have an optimum fermentation temperature below 70f. Depending on the ale yeast you used, you should be fine.

Your ale, that depend entirely on the style, maybe will be more fruit, kolsch yeast with a high temp like 65-70 give some fruit esthers, but your kolsch will be fine
