I brewed a split batch with S04 and Kolsch yeast. The S04 was great after only 3 weeks.. the Kolsch version was not very good. I've let the Kolsch version lager for about 6 weeks, and it's fantastic. I always forget how much that yeast benefits from lagering.

Am planning to brew this this weekend.

However, I do not presently have a fridge to "lager" this beer for 2 months at 39 F. Best I can do is keep it at around 64 F.

Could anyone tell me how these higher temps will effect the outcome and .....

if it is even worth attempting if I can't condition at 39 F ?

I used a Kolsch yeast, Kept it around 65 degrees and it turned out very mellow but still a good beer!!

Ed's recipes are very solid and I haven't had a bad one yet. Very easy to do, play with, and substitute.

That's reassuring so think I will give it a ago.

Just a quick question, Ed says Ferment at 65 degrees for 1 week, drop to 60 for 2 weeks, then crash cool for a few days at 39 before kegging.

However, the White Labs website says:

Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-69°F
Does not ferment well less than 62°F, unless during active fermentation.


Any thoughts from Ed or others ?

I regularly ferment White Labs Kolsch yeast @ 60 F with no issues.

I fermented at 62 and it turns out great! I let it age for about four months and it turned out to be one of the best beers I've made yet.

Thinking of making this as my first keg beer. Keezer in production I used the yeast calculator and it says i need two vials, with a starter for a 5.5 gallon recipe. Sound about right or is it overkill?

Is there anything special about the grain bill that makes this more amenable to fermenting at ale temps. I ask because I was thinking of changing up the grain bill to do 4lb of each, the pilsner, munich, vienna (and omitting the caramuich and caravienna) and fermenting as suggested. Im new-ish to brewing so want to start with the equalized grain bill and vary the grain qty each time i brew it to taste the difference. I may end up back at Ed's grain bill but I figured its a worthwhile experiment, for me anyway.

I would be happy to hear any opinions on this little experiment and what you think the results could be and why.

Thanks
Ayup

Hey guys this look ok? I added a little more hops to up the IBUs. Ed's recipe shows 25 IBUs and the brew builder only hit around 18 when entered. I am looking to brew this this week for a campout in Helen GA(small German style town) the 1st week in October. Thanks in advance.
