That looks a lovely beer. Did you cold crash or fine the beer in any way. I've always known kolsch strains to be none floccuant and powdery.I've only used Kolsch, US Pale and the Real Ale and won't be using the latter two again. The beers were ok but I prefer gervin/notty/bry 97 and us05 for the beers I made with them.
The Kolsch though was excellent, I pitched two packs straight into the beers I made with it and they produced very good beers.
Here's one, a brown/bitter hybrid thing. This was 9 days after brewing it, 3 days after bottling. You can see it drops quick :)

I have used this yeast with a Red ale , I really liked it.. attenuation was similar at 74%. Finished quickly, nice malty clear brewBottling a stout made with beoir yeast today. Attenuation was only 72%. Are forumites finding this typical? (I think it says 75% attenuation on the pack)
Irish moss only as a fining. And a fair whack of calcium in the water iircThat looks a lovely beer. Did you cold crash or fine the beer in any way. I've always known kolsch strains to be none floccuant and powdery.
The CML Kiwi yeasts a belter for pale ales.
That's good to hear as I got a pack of it for a Nelson/Galaxy pale, thought it might be better than my standby West Yorkshire or Scottish ale yeasts.I will second that. The Pia yeast is nice
Give it a rouse too as seems very flocculant. Perhaps a tad more so than nottyThat's good to hear as I got a pack of it for a Nelson/Galaxy pale, thought it might be better than my standby West Yorkshire or Scottish ale yeasts.
The corncrake clone has been fermenting with Beoir at 16.5c in my mate's fridge for almost 2 weeks when he tested it the other day (day 10) he got 1.016 from 1.045 so only 64% attentuation at that stage, bumped the temp a touch and hopefully it finished out a bit lower.
