Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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)

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
Kevin G on Sep 1, 2021

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.

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.

No fermentation temp control required and this yeast worked fast! Attenuated a NEIPA in just 3 days, finished and drinkable after 5 days post brew day!

The Real Deal
This yeast is as good as they say. I pitched 1 packet directly into a 5 gallon batch with an OG of 1.094 at 94 degrees. Within a few hours it was off and running, forming a thick Krausen. This thing is a workhorse.

Thought I would try this yeast as I have read good things about it. Usually use Nottingham or US-05 for ales.
