    I always allow my beer to warm back up to room temperature after cold crashing and before
    bottling. That being said I don't take a temp. I just pull it out of cold crashing the night
    before I'm going ...

    I have one more week of lagering my Kolsch. Looking forward to sampling at bottling time. I
    used the Kolsch yeast cake for an American Wheat recipe. It was fermenting like crazy when I
    checked last ev...

    What type of beer is it? Head retention can vary depending on the style and recipe. And are you
    saying it doesn't pour any head or that it retains no head?

    I just brewed a Kolsch a few weeks ago using the WL 029 yeast. My fermenting chamber is also a
    crawlspace that is at 65 degrees. I am very pleased with what I racked to lager for two more
    weeks. From ...

    I'm just looking forward to getting a few cocoa nibs into half of my batch of coffee stout (if
    not the whole batch). I won't be able to defend my place in the Drunk Monk Sweet Stout category
    for 2013 ...

    I sent in my second G2G order on Saturday evening =)

    A way to get subtle coffee flavor is to pour the wort through a coffee "hop-back" when racking
    to primary. Again, not a strong coffee flavor, very subtle and smooth. Pumps up the coffee
    flavor from th...

  • Posted in thread: How to lager a Kolsch ale ? on 02-15-2013 at 09:20 PM
    I'm fermenting a Kolsch style beer with WLP029 yeast right now. It's going strong at 65 in my
    sub-basement. I plan to let it sit there until it finishes, rack to secondary, and then let it
    lager for 4...
