Description

LalBrew Köln™ – Kolsch Style Ale Yeast

LalBrew Köln - Kolsch Style Ale YeastLalBrew Köln™ is ideal for brewing traditional Kölsch-style beers and other neutral ales.  The neutral character of this strain accentuates delicate hop aromas while imparting subtle fruity esters.  Through expression of a beta-glucosidase enzyme LalBrew Köln™ can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavour and aroma. Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentations will have more fruit-forward ester profile.
