I’ll be brewing a Kolsch this coming weekend using the Koln. I have had good results with all of Lallemand yeasts that I have used. When I can’t get Koln anymore, I’ll have to use something else. I know there are plenty of options.

Please let me know what other options are out there for dry yeast. I have yet to find any that are comparable to koln.
On Tap/Bottled: IPL, Adjunct Vienna, Golden Stout, Honey Lager
Fermenting: IPA
Up Next: mexi lager, Germerican pale ale

I can’t give you any options. I used the wrong word. I don’t know that there are plenty of options. I should have said I’m guessing there are plenty of options. Sorry.

While not exactly the same, MJ 54 is quite similar to Köln in my experience.

I might have to give MJ54 a try.
