Wyeast kolsch 2565. I couldn't believe it. Everything that I have read told me that there wouldn't be much of a krausen on a stir plate.

G, I hate when this happens.
Add 1-2 drops of fermcap or other antifoam agent if you have one.

My last wlp004 ended in drain since it spoiled, but my foil was ripped out completely.
