WYEAST STRAIN: 2565 | Kölsch™
This strain is a classic, true top cropping yeast strain from a traditional brewery in Cologne, Germany. Beers will exhibit some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager like profile. It produces low or no detectable levels of diacetyl. This yeast may also be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers and ferments well at cold 55-60°F (13-16°C) range. This powdery strain results in yeast that remain in suspension post fermentation. It requires filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers.
Temperature Range: 56-70° F (13-21° C)

Liquid Yeast Shipping Policy
It's hot down south, so all liquid yeast orders are shipped with an insulated pouch and two free ice packs. Liquid yeast is shipped to minimize transit time. If you order liquid yeast late in the week with a shipping method that would span the weekend we will hold your order to ship Monday. We recommend a 1 or 2 day shipping time on all liquid yeast orders. USPS Priority Mail is 2 day shipping to most of the Continental US. Liquid yeast is guaranteed viable if it spends no more than 2 days in shipping.
Liquid Yeast Warranty
As long as Liquid Yeast spends a maximum of two days in transit it is guaranteed viable and warrantied. If you receive warrantied yeast from us that does not ferment simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a replacement pack or refund. Please include the batch code, manufacturer date, your original gravity reading and a second gravity reading taken at least three days after pitching. A lack of swelling in your activator pack does not indicate non-viable yeast. More information on liquid yeast and frequently asked questions can be found on Wyeast's Website.
