Kolsch W-177
« on: May 24, 2016, 04:09:55 PM »
Finally get to try this yeast:) local brewery giving me some slurry next week cant wait!   This will be my first brew since last October:( have been fighting a lime size Glioblastoma/brain tumor/Cancer with surgical removal. Still able to wipe my own butt and work so i am doing well:) back to the joyful things in life.
 
the classic strain used for the production of Kölsch beers, with a light fruity estery taste and character with
lower Amyl alcohol contents. Similar to the alt beer yeasts this yeast strain can
be fermented with high or low temperatures. The Diacetyl degradation is, especially by
higher temperatures than 20 °C as good as complete

First and foremost, glad to hear you are here to tell your tale. Sending good juju out your way.

Secondly, I will be very interested to hear your results. Are you going to brew warm, cool, or both? It would make for an interesting split batch.

Very best wished for a full recover! Sounds like a courageous battle. Can't wait to hear how the yeast turns out!

Split batch for sure one at 55F and one at 60F maybe even higher 64F.  Brewing science recommended not to go above 65F.
