Description

Discover the magic of yeast that has been passed down from generation to generation with Voss Kveik. Another Omega yeast strain with an absurdly wide fermentation range, this traditional Norwegian kveik can be traced back directly to the Gjernes farmstead. Similar to Hothead's mango-honey profile, Voss Kveik's orange and citrus notes come through clean across the recommended temperature range. Pair with citrusy, fruity hops for a match made in Valhalla!
 
Kveik refers to traditional Norwegian farmhouse brewing yeast that has been passed down from one generation to the next, literally being harvested and repitched for centuries. Over this long period of time, kveik developed certain characteristics that distinguish it from modern brewer's yeast. In general, kveik has a very high heat tolerance and will produce a consistent flavor profile across the fermentation temperature range. It's also a fast fermenter, highly flocculent, and has an above average alcohol tolerance.
 
Attenuation: 75-82%
Flocculation: Medium

Optimum Fermentation Temp: 68-98°F

Please Note: For best results we Always recommend ordering an Ice Pack with your liquid yeast. Ice Packs can be found below in the "You might Also Need" section.

I've brewed with Voss a few times and have had great results across a variety of temperature ranges. This will be perfect for my father-in-law who is just starting to get into BIAB brewing and lives in a warm climate.

Should we pitch the entire packet on a 1.080 OG or under-pitch it is as Lars suggests?
Palm Beach Bar and Brewery on May 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I only used this twice with the same routine. 1.055 pale ale and a 1.060 ipa. At room temp. (68F). I let it free rise to about 75F. At least that was the highest I saw. Both had one pack about 60 days from package date. Fairly clean with a Slight citrus to the recipes. Both used wlp-001 normally. I think a single pack will do it fine but may take longer. Also may stress the yeast more creating more esters/citrus. I don't think you'll have a bad beer but if the citrus is too much temp control or a starter may be needed for the next one. Sometimes with new ingredients you just need to play a bit to figure them out.
Because it can ferment at such a high temp so I even need to worry about an ice pack or anything for shipping?
Zek Owrey on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Zek - We highly recommend adding ice packs to orders for any purchases of yeast.

I was unsure how it would work for me as I e had off flavors in production beers that used Kveik yeast but I am impressed. It was active quickly and the taste is awesome!

Started fermenting faster than any other yeast
I did a small yeast starter for 24 hours using 2 packs of the Voss Kveik yeast and within 5 hours of pitching the yeast it was fermenting like crazy. It basically finished in about 2 days @ 90F. Amazing yeast and I will be washing the yeast and keeping it for my next batch.

Omega Yeast - Voss Kveik
This family of Kveik yeast is my new "go to yeast" due to is temperature and ABV tolerance. Along with the bonus of a great flavor profile that works well with most beer styles. This yeast will clear up quicker than most when cold aged for a few weeks.

Summertime IPA’s
Look forward to brewing when I’m usually shut down by temperature. I live in warm climes for five of twelve months. Now I can brew far longer into the Spring and Summer with the use of this yeast.

Speeds things up!
It's true, you can be drinking beer in less than a week from brew day with this yeast. Amazing to run it at 95-100F and get no off flavors. I have found that the beer does improve with a little aging, two or three weeks, to develop the flavors of the malt and hops. Hazy IPA fans, this is a great yeast for you!
