Default Kolsch Questions

I ordered the Gold Seal Kolsch Extract Kit from AHS. The I read another post about lagering that mentiond cold conditioning. I really didn't think about it when I ordered the kit.

Does Kolsch need to be lagered?
Do I need to hurry up and drink all of my store bought beer so I can pull the shelves out of my garage fridge and put a 6.5 gallon carboy on there?!?

Kolsch does not need to be lagered, unless you brew with a lager yeast. As long as you are using an ale yeast you should be fine.

should be fermented at 60-65. does not need to be cold-conditioned in secondary except for clarity.

The yeast is Nottingham dry yeast. If I remember correctly, that is the same yeast that I used for my West Coast Red Ale from AHS, too.
