LalBrew Köln is ideal for brewing traditional Kölsch-style beers and other neutral ales. The neutral character of this strain accentuates delicate hop aromas while imparting subtle fruity esters. Through the expression of a beta-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew Köln can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. Colder fermentations will be more neutral in character, while warmer fermentation will have a more fruit-forward ester profile - think pear, white grape, and light fleshed fruits.
Beer Styles: Kolsch-style, neutral ales
Aroma: Sightly fruity, more neutral with colder ferments
