I wish that this strain was year round, because it makes an incredible Kolsch! The diacetyl production is little to none (not that I can taste it anyway, but it's nice to know that you won't either!), and the temp range is quite a bit wider than your standard Kolsch ale strain, 55 - 70, giving you some more versatility while still being able to make a killer and authentic beer. When available, it's also a great strain to finish off a stuck fermentation, at least on beers under 11%.
