c'mon guys I need an answer here.  Making a Kolsch with Organic Gambrinus pilsner malt. Wondering if I need a rest or not.  Anybody ever use this malt?

I've never used the malt before but I highly doubt it needs a protein rest. Very, very few malts available to homebrewers need protein rests. Perhaps if it is 6 row it would need it - but if it is 2 row you should be fine with a single infusion.
