Notes

Yeast options:

  • Wyeast 2575 (Kolsch II)
  • White Labs WLP003 (German Ale II)

    Notes from BYO article:
  • Whirlpool the kettle by gently stirring with a mash paddle for 2 minutes and then let rest for an addition 13 minutes to achieve a 15-minute flameout steep.
  • Ferment at 60 °F (16 °C) for the first 48 hours and then free rise up to 64 °F (18 °C) and hold at that temperature until you reach terminal gravity. Crash cool at 33 °F (1 °C) for the better part of a week and then package.
