Kolsch

Slightly Fruity, More Neutral with Colder Fermentations

Overview

Kolsch is ideal for brewing traditional Kolsch-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 β-glucosidase enzyme, Kolsch can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavour and aroma. Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentations will have a more fruit-forward ester profile.
