I just brewed this. I only had a limited amount of Tettnang so i subed Cascade in the 60 min. I made a lager out of it. The real yeast should be WLP008 (Sam Adams yeast).

I was under the impression this beer is a lager. Maybe their website is wrong though.

The description below is what made me use kolsch yeast for this. Because a kolsch is a pseudo lager yeast, it made sense to me. The fact that the kolsch yeast adds some cloudiness to the beer also made it a fit for when I tried this a year ago. Also, if you read about what a Kellerbier is, it states that it can be top OR bottom fermenting

I really think my original recipe hopped up a little more and dry hopped will be pretty close to the original and I am hoping to get some time to test this out soon.

From the Sam's website:
Alpine Spring features a unique blend of lager attributes: the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock, and the unfiltered appearance of a Kellerbier.

Is it the yeast that adds the cloudiness or lack of finings or crashing? I ask, because I lived in Cologne for short time and never had one that wasn't crystal clear. Maybe they're filtered, but I've made a lot of very clean/clear beers without finings.

Kolsch yeast's add cloudiness when drank young since the yeast does not flocculate well. If you were to age a kolsch cold, as you do with lagers, it will eventually clear up. I do not know of any yeast that stays cloudy forever, eventually the yeast will fall out of suspension.

Alpine spring is cloudy and that is what I was trying to replicate with the kolsch yeast.

Your right it is a lager. Guess I was thinking of summer ale. I quests the question is , what lager yeast does Sam Adams use? I used wlp800. The website says unfiltered lager yeast

So is this to be fermented with larger yeast or Kolsch? Also will the Tettnang hops provide the lemon flavor profile?
