Regardless of how "good" it tastes (it doesn't) you ARE NOT drinking the beer at 7 days. If it was really that good at 7 days, you would be consuming it at that point. You are not, so stop arguing. ...

Of all the beers I've made, I wouldn't have drank (drunk?) a single one of them after one week in the primary fermenter. They all needed a week or two more in either secondary, bottle, or keg. With...

You're really judging the flavor of your beer after one week sitting in the primary fermenter? Dude, you need to sit back chill out and relax.

How Many Days Before Diacetyl Rest - Kolsch Ale

Fermenting a Kolsch right now at 56°F, started on Sat 6/28, so it's been four days to this point. I'd prefer not to open the lid to take a gravity reading at this point, so I'm thinking one more day...

You're totally fine. The nutrient packet is in there to allow for expansion to show viability. As far as I know, it has nothing to do with the actual yeast themselvess

Wyeast 2575-PC Kölsch II

I plan on using this yeast to make a pilsner-like ale (will be using 95% pilsner malt and 100% Saaz hops). Anyone have experience with this "special" yeast fermenting at around 55°-56°? I'm curious...

No BJCP snobbery here, but if you don't use Kolsch yeast, you aren't making a Kolsch.

With that said, RmikeVT summed up your beer very well in his post.

That's gonna be, uh, harsh.

An oz at 60, .5oz at 30 (optional), and the rest under 10 (plus flame out and dry hop) is what you should be aiming for.

The big 3 BMC have done a damn fine job with their marketing efforts convincing the populous that you should be drinking beer at 33° and not a tenth of a degree warmer.
