Hey guys.

Im wanting to put on a Kolsh (Summer Days Kolsh) from the recipe DB. It calls for White Labs WLP029 German Ale/Kolsh yeast. I usally shop at G&G but they dont stock white labs, I looked on CraftBrewer but they dont have any either. Any Ideas guys. Either in Mel or mail order cheers guys.

Thanks BCP.

I had thought about using an equivanlent Wyeast instead as this is the brand of liquid yeast I usally use but would like to stay as authentic to the recipe as I can. I would like to find somewhere in melbourne I can buy it. Never used White Labs before and im keen to give it a go given all the good feedback Ive herd about it.

cheers Rob

i have never used the whitelabs kolsh yeast but with 1007 allow plenty of time for cold conditioning as the yeast take forever to flocc.

ESB and The Brew Shop supply Whitelabs yeast, see their link at top of page.
Like the 1007 it needs cold conditioning to clear and to gain the crisp flavour profile.

PS My 1000 post, that came around quickly.

Yup Brewers Den in Boronia have whitelabs yeasts. But call first is my bet to check the range they have in stock.

Cheers,

Hopper.

I've used both Wyeast and White labs strains numerous times...They are effectively the same yeast and produced identical results in my Kolsch brews.

Wallington WRG on down the Bellarine Peninsula stock White Labs. Might be quicker for you to get to than Melbourne.
