Wyeast Activator 2565 – Kolsch

This strain is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. Beers will exhibit some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile. It produces low or no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast may also be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers and ferments well at cold 55-60°F (13-16°C) range. This powdery strain results in yeast that remain in suspension post fermentation. It requires filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers. Origin: Flocculation: low Attenuation: 73-77% Temperature Range: 56-70° F (13-21° C) Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 10% ABV Styles: American Wheat or Rye Beer Berliner Weisse Bière de Garde Cream Ale Düsseldorf Altbier Fruit Beer Kölsch Northern German Altbier Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

Came in fresh!

I love the Kolsch yeast, makes delicious beers that finish clean and lager like. It will develop more fruit esters at the higher temp ranges. The main thing I was worried about was getting fresh yeast. I was not disappointed as this came in only a month past manufacture (meaning there was still 5 good months left on it).
