Bottling after lagering

(1/2) > >>

brewaskew:
I have a Kolsch coming to the end of its lagering phase.  This is the first time I have ever made a brew that needed cold conditioning.  When I bottle it, do I need to keep it at the lager temp or should I just let it condition at normal cellar temp?  Would it be a good idea to add a little extra yeast?

Thanks.

oscarvan:
Interesting...... I am brewing the Kölsch out of "Beer Captured" tomorrow and it mentions no cold anything until after conditioning.

tygo:
You should let it condition at regular cellar temps or it will take forever to carb up.  No need to add yeast unless it was lagering for a very long time or it's a very strong beer.

After reading this again...... A Kölsch is an ale, isn't it? What lagering?

Kölsch and Altbiers are ales, but they do usually benefit from lagering- meaning to store/condition at cold temperatures, not the yeast variety.
