LalBrew Köln is ideal for brewing traditional Kölsch-style beers & other neutral ales. The neutral character of this strain accentuates delicate hop aromas while imparting subtle fruity esters. Through expression of a B-glucosidase enzyme, Köln can promote hop biotransformation & accentuate hop flavor & aroma. Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentations will have a more fruit-forward ester profile.
