My SG was slightly higher...about 1.057
The kolsch yeast I used was about the same; very low ester production and a very clean, yet malty, taste. I still have a few left I happened to forget at my friends house that we t\had the other day. Still tastes good, yet it tastes boozy now. It was 5.71% ABV to begin with and it wasn't this boozy...I wonder if the ABV went up. is there a way to test it?

Hah, back from the dead, but I was thinking about this same thing earlier. I want to brew an Oktoberfest and lager it until Sept. I can lager it in the keg in my keggerator, but fermentation is the main issue. The cellar is about 58*F right now and will only get warmer. I was considering a swamp cooler, a tub of water with the fermenter in it, replacing jugs of ice every 12 hrs. OR, using a Cali or San Fran Lager yeast, which can ferment warmer. I think I may try the swamp cooler. I just hope the temp doesn't fluctuate too much.
