Enjoy a lager-like profile without the wait!

Legend of Lutra™ is a recipe kit we have formulated to really let this unique and clean yeast/kveik strain shine. The simple malt base is inspired by the pervasive American Lager style and then bolstered with a small amount of light caramel malt to lend a golden hue, while a modest dose of hops provide just enough bitterness to balance. The real star of the show is Omega's Lutra™ kveik strain and its incredible versatility. Temperature control is not needed with this strain - ferment it at room temperature for a lager-like finish, or let it crank at 90F and you will be hard-pressed to find a flavor difference. This yeast strain is a game-changer and is legendary in its own right.

Kveik Yeast From Omega Yeast! Ferment At Higher Temps!

From Farmhouse to Fementer: Your Guide to Kveik Yeast

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head Brewer:

“This recipe may seem overly simple, but that is for a reason. The true purpose of the intentionally basic grain bill and hop schedule is to highlight a truly unique yeast strain. Omega Yeast has released a single strain of Norwegian Kveik, and the results from this strain are truly impressive. Originally isolated from Omega’s Hornindal Kveik yeast blend, Lutra™ is a rapidly fermenting yeast strain with an incredible neutral flavor expression within a wildly remarkable temperature range. Fermented at traditional ale temperatures around 68F, Lutra™ produces nearly lager-like beers with an exceptionally clean and crisp finish with minimal ester production. On the other end of the temperature spectrum in the low 90F range, Lutra™ remains quite clean yet expresses a gentle ester profile that brings to mind the flavors of a traditional Kolsch strain. In addition to its incredibly clean and crisp flavor profile, Lutra™ is an absolute beast with an insatiable hunger for malt sugars - full attenuation can be achieved in mere days. With lower temps, I have found that this recipe can attenuate in 4 days, while elevated fermentation temperatures pare this down to 3. Of course, there are many factors that influence its performance, but it is a very rapidly fermenting yeast strain to be sure. Ensuring proper aeration/oxygenation will give the yeast cells everything they need to chow down on your wort to flip a batch at break-neck speed. Although temperature control is not particularly important, taking this strain up to normally forbidden heat levels will not be a detriment to this recipe. Go ahead, crank this one up and let it rip - you will be surprised at how quickly and cleanly Lutra™ gets the job done, and then it seems to magically drop out of suspension leaving a relatively clear beer in short order. It may be a “new” Kveik strain to most, but Lutra™ is certainly a legend in the making.”

Great lager like ale

This beer turned out pretty solid, I fermented next to a fireplace to see what it would do and it reached FG in 4 days. It cleared up quite nicely thanks to some irish moss I threw in, very crisp and relatively clean fermentation for letting it rip uncontrolled, earthy and piney at the nose and a touch of stone fruit at the finish. Very sessionable, on par with a couple craft and commercial brewed lagers I compared it to. Big fan of kviek yeast now. If I brew again, might change up the hops for something more interesting

Kveik Lutra

I think the yeast is probably okay, I followed the recipe and should have listened to my personal thoughts while making. I’m not a light beer guy, love hoppy, malty beers. This is not that beer. It’s the only beer I’ve made that certain friends actually liked, the Bud Light drinkers. I might try again with a different grain bill and more hops.

Almost ready to drink Lutra

All grain beer kit was delivered promptly with simple instructions. I’m going to keg Monday and should be ready to drink 2 weeks from kegging. The recipe called for bottling so may have changed some of the properties but still anxious to try what is a light beer.
