As i understand it Kolsch is more a German version of our pale ales and not a lager!!!!!
Is lager not bottom fermented as against the Kolsch which is top fermented.
I did label mine up as psuedo lager though
This is all very confusing for a simple ale drinker like me ( the ale being the simple one, not me). I made something that was supposed to be a cream ale, using Cali Common yeast. Fermented at ale temps but conditioned as a lager and supposed to meet somewhere in the middle. Ah I don't know about that but it turned out rather nice anyroad.

Been looking into kolsch and alt yeasts and it seems kolsch yeasts have a "winey" ester profile. Does the CML yeast have this or is it more clean?

My interpretation was a lager is a bottom fermenter and an ale a top fermenter so when kolsch is labelled as a lager yeast I would have assumed that it fermented at 10°-12° as opposed to 15° but it's all I have so shall give it a go.

I have fermented it at 15c and it wenrt off like a rocket so it will definitely go down to 12c. I would use 2 packs of yeast though. I do do a diacetol rest but tbh i have never noticed any in the samples and it does not produce and sulphur smell. I cold crash for 2 days then add finings and bottle 2 days later.
