    Yeah, you are fine, just decant as much of the beer off as possible.

    Id look into 3787 as a yeast (fermented around 68-70), with some dark d-180 candi syrup, I
    think that would have all the basic flavors and make a good base for something like this.

    Sterling is a domestic saaz substitute. Its fine here. I personally dont like any dark crystal
    in my dunkelweizens. you could add some, but 12% total is likely to taste like pepsi. id keep

    I dont know when the next got season is, but amber malt at those rates is going to take months

    keg? I mean it usually takes a few days cold and undisturbed to clear.

    Ive never refridgerated it. There is regular biofine which is isinglass (needs refridgeration).
    Biofine clear is collodial silica, the same as kieselsol and does not need refridgeration.

    Id enter it as a blonde, you might get dinged for it being too malty and dark for a kolsch.
    Theres only 2 or so kolsches that get imported, judges are going to have a pretty narrow
    conception of the s...

    blonde is a broader category. What is its final color, projrcted ibu, and were there much
    finishing hops?

    yeah once the haze causing proteins fall out, they wont recloud the beer, or go back into
    suspension.
