kolsch yeast will give it's own distinctive flavor you may not want in your dunkel.

i guess kolsch is kind of fruity and vaguely sweet, it's unmistakable. without that yeast you do not have a kolsch.

I used Wyeast German ale yeast (1007) for the Brew House Munich Dunkel kit with good results. The real trick was to add Blackprinz malt and Herkules hops. Mmmmmm.
