Any recommendations? In particular, I am curious what the folks who have used different Kolsch strains have to say... Thanks.

The standard kolsch strain from white labs did great for me very recently (029), I never let it go above 60 and it performed beautifully. Tastes great and buds from the club love it. Wish I could confidently say its authentic, but I've never had a real kolsch from Koln :P
