    Austin Homebrew is usually where I've found it. It can be a little difficult sometimes as it

    Fermentis also has K-97, which is widely believed to be a dried Kolsch or Altbier strain. I've

    Can you lager? If so, then the choice seems obvious.If not, I brew a cream ale that I craft-ify
    a little more with Kolsch yeast.Its 80% two-row, 20% Corn. The same crowd you speak of really
    likes it. ...

    I can vouch. I make my blond with Kolsch.
