Try to keep koelsh at lagering temperatures after bottling. It's traditionally done in Germany.

My brewing buddy Den, transferred his to a secondary last night and checked his gravity. His was at 1.006. So at least we are at the same attenuation and FG.

I assume mine just fermented faster being a little warmer...

Who cares, we made beer and it will be tasty...

Default too high pitch temp?

just pitched this yeast a few hours ago. i wasnt thinking too clearly, and pitched when the wort was still about 82. we cooled it down to 65 in about 2 hours. worried that my hight pitch temp might produce some off flavors. whats yalls thinkin?

Probably going to be alright. If you can drop it down to 60 I think you'll be pleased with the results.

You'll probably be alright assuming you ferment on the low to mid end of the range, that yeast throws med to high acetal under normal conditions, you'll have to judge this at the tail of ferm and maybe let it have a bit of a warm up at finish to clean up its bad behaviours. Then presumably you'll lager it where time is your friend, brewing 25 gallon motueka hopped version for third time - today...it gets better with a little rest it seems, the last keg of the batch is always the best... But I think I say that with every last keg.

Good luck...

I do in fact lager mine, it is as very dusty strain and takes a long while to floc out and clear the beer. It is a hybrid ale/lager strain, and I do believe both WL & Wyeast recommend lagering. Believe me, I am impatient and usually drink first couple kegs after at least a week - its a bit cloudy/yeasty but after 3-4 weeks its crystal clear and the subtle hop & pear-like notes pop. In this case patience has rewards..
