I think I'm going to give a Kolsch a go this weekend, however I read that I should cold crash it in the secondary for 2 weeks since they're pretty stubborn to clear. What temperature should I cold crash at? Also, even with cold crashing will there be enough yeast getting into the bottles to carbonate?


Here's my recipe:
10# German Pilsner
2# Wheat Malt

Mash for 60 minutes at 151 degrees.

1.5 oz Hallertauer 4% AA for 60 minutes
1/2 oz Hallertauer 4% AA for 15 minutes
1/2 oz Hallertauer 4% AA for 5 minutes

Are you kegging or bottling? If bottling, are you worried they won't carb due to all the yeast falling out?
