I'll be brewing 2 batches today, one of which is a mock Schwartzbier (the other a standard D-Alt). Both will be fermented at about 60F with WLP036 Dusseldorf Alt yeast for 2 weeks the. Layered for another 2+ weeks. Anyone ever do this? I've wanted to try for awhile, and the beers I make using WLP029 are very lager-like. I'll be sure to keep y'all updated!

Alright... well I'll consider this a personal journal

I just pitched the WLP036 into both fermenters- the wort was 55F after sitting in the chamber over night. Here goes!

WLP036 is a much cleaner fermenting than WLP029 with respect to esters. I find WLP36 is better if you are looking for a more classic lager taste in a ale. That being said, I too love WLP029. I've go a beer fermenting with it right now. When I want a true lager, I use lager yeast as I have the set-up to use them. If I didn't, I'd probably use WLP036.

I should mention that I am a fan of light fizzy beers and brew a lot of them so I really appreciate what a kolsch has to offer and also appreciate the differences that can be created in pale lagers, and lager-like beers

I use 029 a lot and I have to disagree- fermenting cool, I perceive 029 to be much cleaner than 036.

Thanks for the update. Does 036 throw any sulfur smell?
