Notes
Really clear right from the fermentor, nice tasting and very clean, as about as good as you can get without a lager yeast, defiantly a winner beer

now in order to get this right I used the ramping up method, start cold at 59, let it set for 5 days then ramp to 65 go three days then 70 and go three more days without opening then keg and let the beer sit at 34 while carbing slowly at 12....after 5 days on co2 it was Hell of a Kolsch
