KOLSCH II (OYL-044)
From: Omega Yeast
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
This Kolsch strain is warmer fermenting than Kolsch I (OYL-017), flocculates much better and clears more quickly, so is a little easier to manage. It is a lager-like ale strain that's lightly fruity, crisp and clean with a hint of sulfur that disappears with age to leave a clean ale. Accentuates hop flavors.
Brewing Properties of KOLSCH II
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
