Omega Yeast 091 Hornindal Kveik
Hornindal produces an intense tropical flavor and aroma with notes of fresh pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Compliments fruit-forward hops as well as adds another dimension to beer made with traditional "C" hops.
Another unique kveik originating from the farmhouses of Norway. We preserved the original blend of strains to bring the best possible complexity. Hornindal produces an intense tropical flavor and aroma with notes of fresh pineapple, mango, and tangerine. Compliments fruit-forward hops as well as adds another dimension to beer made with traditional "C" hops. Warmer fermentation temperatures will increase the aromatic profile and fermentation speed. Non-phenolic. Like Hothead and Voss Kveik, it ferments well without off flavors at 90+° F.

Fermented really well, haven’t tasted the batch yet, but didn’t smell right when opening it. Smelled like rotten eggs. Maybe it warmed up?
Made a SMaSH with this yeast, to get an idea of yeast characteristic. Fermented at 80 degrees (as warm as I could get it in February). Overall it's a very clean yeast, but I still got a great deal of mango/orange flavor that complemented the Cascade hops really well.
I’ve used it for everything from a porter to an ipa and Pilsner, works greater. It tends to give any beer a “bigger” flavor profile, so will make lighter beers slightly heavier, but not in a bad way. Fruity hops, citra, centennial, etc, it really brings out big flavors in big beers, too.
