Koelsch (kölsch) 2-stage fermentation?
« on: June 17, 2011, 05:16:02 PM »
Hi guys.

I'm pondering about this Kölsch 2-stage fermentation in BS2.
I'm going to brew this one at sun., and just wanted to know how the 2-stage fermentation works.
Tried to find the description in the program, but could'nt find anything.

Does it mean that I have to put the beer in a secondary fermenter after some time?

Btw: Not sure im posting this in the right subforum. :)

Thanks for all replies!

Hi,
  Yes - for a two stage fermentation you move the beer to a secondary during the second stage, before bottling and aging.
