I brew a LOT with Kolsch, its my house strain which I wash and re-use. Not sure about WLP029 but I use Wyeast 2565 and its very slow floccuating yeast. Crash cool for a week usually helps at the end of fermentation, colder the better. Sometimes I don't transfer it to secondary, let it ride for 3-4 weeks and then it goes to the keg to settle out. 68F is way too warm for this strain, around 58-60F you get best results with 2565, I heard WLP029 does better at warmer temperatures.
