  • Voss Kveik Yeast x 11g (Norwegian High Temperature Ale) [Lalbrew-Lallemand]

    SKU: 5708046115423

    Kveik is a Norwegian word meaning yeast. In the Norwegian farmhouse tradition, kveik was preserved by drying and passed from generation to generation. Kveik is the original, traditional dried yeast!


    The LalBrew Voss strain was obtained from Sigmund Gjernes (Voss, Norway), who has maintained this culture using traditional methods since the 1980s and generously shared it with the wider brewing community.

    LalBrew Voss supports a wide range of fermentation temperatures between 25-40°C (77-104°F) with a very high optimal range of 35-40°C (95-104°F).

    Very fast fermentations are achieved within the optimal temperature range with full attenuation typically achieved within 2-3 days.

    The flavor profile is consistent across the entire temperature range: neutral with subtle fruity notes of orange and citrus.

    Flocculation is very high producing clear beers without filtration or use of process aids.
