Kolsch - Protein Rest or Not ?

(1/7) > >>

Do you do a protein rest for a Kolsch?

It depends on the malt, not the recipe, AFAIAC.  What malt are you using?

I knew someone would ask that.  Not sure why I didn't mention it.

7% Best Wheat
93% Best Pilsen

Never got my analysis on them.

Mile Hi Brewing Supplies:
I believe Pilsner malts are generally at least moderately modified and, therefore, much of the larger proteins have already been broken down during malting.  The addition of 7% wheat is probably not enough to require one either.  If it were me, I would not perform a protein rest but some might favor a short (15-30 minute) rest at 133ish.

I haven't found a p rest necessary with Best pils malt.
