    Anyone ever tried the Danstar Kolsch yeast? If so, how does it compare to Wyeast 2565?

    Hi Luke, I used the 2565 years ago and loved it. Never used the Danstar variety. Have you looked at the technical comments on the respective websites? I hope the dry is as good as the 2565, lovely! If you give it a go make sure you report back.

    There's been a fair bit of discussion, and some good side-by-side comparisons with 2565 - don't have the link handy but try a Google search for a "New Dry Kolsch Yeast" thread and see if you can find it, then check out the recent posts in the what are you brewing and homebrew in the glass threads as well.

    Thanks for the links and initial feedback. Might have to give it a go.

    Made an alt with it, made a big starter, got 79% attenuation and it tasted just like the alt I tried in Dusseldorf earlier this year. I will brew it again exactly the same.
