Description

Kveik, the original, traditional dry beer yeast! Kveik is a Norwegian word meaning yeast. In the Norwegian farmhouse tradition, kveik was preserved by drying and passed from generation to generation. 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 Kveik supports a wide range of fermentation temperatures between 77-104°F with a very high optimal range of 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.

Beer Styles: Norwegian farmhouse ales, neutral ales
Aroma: Relatively neutral at high temps, slight orange and citrus notes
Attenutation: Medium to High
Fermentation Range: 77-104°F (Optimal: 95-104°F)
Flocculation: Very High
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV

Recommended by a MoreBeer associate. My garage is perfect right now for this yeast!

Best price... anywhere. Plus, I always purchase a few to get free shopping. Don't judge me!
Ju S on Sep 13, 2021
I like that it has a high temp range and can be used in the summer when you don't always have a cool place to ferment, also don't have to chill as low before pitching, and it speeds up the primary fermentation

How many grams per gallon at 70°f of the dry voss? And what happens if you over pitch?
William Grabowski on Sep 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I fermented at 85f and used 1/2 packet on a cream ale. Real vigorous fermentation, 1" firm krausen and continuous gas blowoff. Came out really well.
I think whole packet into 5 gallons may be over pitch but the pale ale was great.

King Kveik
Kveik is just plain awesome for so many reasons.

Even though I have very goos temperature control, I still use kveik strains. Love co-fermenting with other strains to drastically reduce conditioning time.

An excellent dry flavor profile, top-fermenting yeast
Soak in advance and you will have a nice slurry.

Spicy off character to beer
Gives a spicy, pepper like flavor that was not desirable in my pale ale. It fermented maybe a day faster than a typical house strain of yeast with a starter.

I like this yeast
I've only brewed two beers with it so far, a raw beer and a boiled wort beer, and both have turned out well. This yeast brings its own 'barnyard funk' to the table, a flavor more pronounced in the raw beer and more subtle in the other one. It's reminiscent of wet hay, unusual though not unpleasant, if you're into that sort of thing. Also a super fast fermentation, allowing me to bottle at day 5 or 6. Recommended!

Great fast fermenting yeast
You just can't beat this yeast for a really quick and flavorful NEIPA. Completely fermented out my OG 1.086 beer in 36 hours. The Great thing is you can ferment at higher temperatures. I've gone all the way up to 100°, but for my last batch I fermented at 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Beautiful results, no off flavors. I would recommend this to anyone who likes IPAs or NEIPAs.

I don't like kveik
I ordered this because of all of the rants that various home brew forums had on kveik and the great IPAs people were brewing with it. I have since learned that I don't like kveik and if you do you're wrong (this is obviously i joke - at least I hope it is obvious).

That being said, the yeast really worked great.

Miracle yeast!
Miracle yeast! Now my go to summer yeast. Have repitched 1 packet 4 times with no ill effects. Clean and fast between 75-84 F. Blonde ale, pale ale, Scottish ale, smoked stout, smoked amber...all came out wonderful with this yeast.
Pitched all at 75F. Complete fermentation in less than 48 hrs. Mostly within 24 hrs.

Yeast Monster
This stuff will chew up your wort in no time at high temps. Give it a healthy amount of yeast nutrient, aerate your wort, and crank up the heat. Leaves a nice subtle spiced orange/orange fruit leather ester profile. Great with citrus hops. This yeast shines in the summer if/when you don't have temperature control.
