You could bring the temperature up to 70F until it starts fermenting. The yeast will grow faster at higher temperatures, but it should be going in 48-72 hours even at 60F.

Start thinking about it when it hits 48hrs and is still doing nothing - repitch after 72 if it still isn't doing anything. 12hrs is not nearly enough time.

This kolsch better turn out good.... this month and a half of cold conditioning is sucking up valuable fridge space. I actually had to put a keg in a ice filled bucket this past weekend.

I'm in Seattle in a condo, I got the beer in the spare bedroom, if I need it colder I shut the door and open the window.
