Product Details
A traditional Norwegian "kveik" strain from the farmhouse brewery of Sigmund Gjernes in Voss, Norway, this strain (like OYL-057 HotHead) is capable of fermenting across a broad temperature range with little change in flavor profile. Voss Kveik is non-phenolic and produces a beer with moderate citrus notes allowing it to pair very well with citrusy and fruity hops. This strain is not fast at the low end of the range so don't be afraid to pitch at temperatures in the middle to upper part of the range. Ferments between 68-98° F. Voss Kveik is a proprietary strain that you will not find anywhere else.

Great yeast for warm ferment.
I have used Kveik and Hothead yeast to ferment at too warm temps. Both made for a crisp ale at temps you would expect off flavors. I have read the Kveik gives a slight orange flavor but the recipe I used it in contained sweet orange peel so it was hard to tell. I have reused the Kveik once and will do a third generation soon. Just save out a small amount from your fermenter and make a starter for the next batch.

Definitely recommend that all brewers should try it
I love the temperature range, not worrying about temp control is great. And the citrus esters produced along with the mild funk can add interesting and unique characteristics to most styles of beer. This yeast inspired me to come up with a Norwegian Farmhouse Ale with juniper berries. Will definitely order again.

what is the alcohol tolerance range for this yeast?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2017
Can this yeast be used to make a Munich Dunkel, or other lagers?
Vernon J on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I attempted a festbier, pils, and black lager at 70F and it produced a beer that was very lager-like but could in no way be confused with a true lager. YMMV but I'd just offer Saflager 34/70
Just wondering what the initial cell count is?
A shopper on May 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you would like to know how many yeast cells are in the Omega Voss Kveik yeast. Omega claims that their yeast packages can contain between 150-500 billion yeast cells per package. Unfortunately we don't know which packages have what amounts, but all liquid yeast packages does contain enough yeast cells to brew a 5 gallon batch of beer. Cheers! -Deanna, staff
