Dry Kolsch yeast

Post by alix101 » Thu Jun 15, 2017 8:30 pm

I've seen it I'm sure but where I don't know does anybody have an idea or am I dreaming.

The Crossmyloof Brewery. They have a page on facebook. I have ordered about four different sachet of yeast from them. The American Pale is very clean and very fast. Very impressed.

There is also Safale K97, which I've used before.
I must drink the Beer.
Beer is the mind-killer.
Beer is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my Beer.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the Beer has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I ordered some thanks ...
Didn't arrive in time for the weekend brew but I did a nice session IPA instead .
If this yeast is as good as WLP029 I'll be a happy brewer....

+1, I like K97. I am glad that it is now supplied in the small sachets.

Not sold on the CML Pale yet but the Kolsch is superb.

Same temp I got mine.

15c for 5 days, up to 20c over 2 days and then 20c for 7 days. I'll then crash to 0c and fine with gelatine. Looking forward to trying this brew. Haven't done a Kolsch before, also first ferment using BrewPi.

Two packs into 1.050 wort, fermenting at 15C. Might try the one pack next time.
