i'm interested in brewing this kolsch recipe, but i don't have any kolsch yeast and getting yeast is hard here in iceland.

the yeast i have is safbrew t58, safale s04, safbrew s33, saflager s23 and safale us05. would any of these do?

The kolsch beer is a style that relies on the characteristics of kolsch yeast...so if you sub out yeast, it will not be a "kolsch".
I know that is not what you want to hear...maybe try it with S-05? or a different recipe?

This grain bill would be great w/ a lager yeast IMO, but to be totally honest I don't have any experience w/ the s23. Not a big fan of T58 at all. US-05 would be tasty or Notty fermented really cold (56-58F) would probably work well also. It won't be the same, but it'll almost certainly make really good beer. You might even find you like it better.

Funny Kolsch story from this weekend. I bottled some up to bring to our Teach a Friend to Brew Day brewday and poured some out for my friend. He's German, speaks German and goes back a few times a year. From his stories, he apparently goes back solely to drink beer and seeing his family is a side effect

He took a sip, his eyes got real wide, he looked at me an exclaimed, "Are you f*ing kidding me?" He *loved* it. He said it reminded him of DAB beer.

I'm brewing this on Saturday for imbibing for the ACC championship in Tampa TWO WEEKS from brew-date. Anyone had any experience drinking this that early? I've got a dozen or so friends to please and this was my fastest disappearing batch to date.

FWIW, I will be crash cooling on schedule and force carbing. The starter has been going since yesterday with WLP029.

Yeah it was still good, but the clarity just wasn't there yet. (10 days primary, 3 days crash-cooling, forced-carbed). It definitely got quite a bit better after a couple weeks at serving temps.

So, grahamfw, did it work out, drinking it early?

Absolutely! Everyone loved it. I had some foaming issue with one keg but I think it was more my equipment than anything else. It would have been clearer had I waited but it was more than drinkable for the weekend.

I got crazy high efficiency (upper 80's, lower 90's depending on whose webform I use) but it was still not too heavy. I have whole-heartedly decided that I need to have this on tap at all times too - way too delicious to only have for session occasions. This is my de facto "beer in 2" should I ever need another.

Can anyone who bottled this beer outline the process they used? I will be brewing this soon and my plan was 2 weeks in primary @ 65, 2 weeks primed and bottled @ 65 to carb and then crash it.

Is this correct, or should I use some other method?

Cheers!
Kevin
