Product details

Kveiking is back! 

This once limited release is now part of Imperial's year-round offerings. Kveiking is a blend of three Kveik strains that can produce an insane amount of pineapple, guava and other exotic tropical fruit aromas. The Kveiking blend thrives in hot fermentations when big complex ester profiles are desired.  A low pitch rate can be used to drive these aromatics even higher but the brewer should ensure this low pitch rate can be combined with a continuously high fermentation temperature. If the temperature drops too low, the corresponding level of attenuation can be low, with high terminal gravities. 

This blend contains flocculent and non-flocculent yeast strains, therefore the clarity of the final beers produced can be variable. Use this blend for anything from new school hazy IPAs to traditional Norwegian farmhouse brews. The Kveiking blend also works well when fermenting kettle soured worts when a strong tropical fruit character is desired.

Details:

  • Temp: 75-97F, 24-36C 
  • Flocculation: Low
  • Attenuation: 75-85%

Fantastic summer yeast.

Even though it is probably too hot in most of this country to successfully brew with this yeast at the present, given its temperature rating that is just barely so in many cases. I have used this same yeast for a Scandinavian inspired dark ale at an average temperature of 90° and it came out just as good as when it was bubbling away at 70. It is the ultimate summer yeast!

We made rum with this yeast. After distillation the aroma is amazing pineapple stone fruit, papaya, and mango. It's aging now should be great

I made two batches of the fruit bazooka one with Imperial Barbarian and one with Kveiking and they were totally different beers! Kveiking still made it hazy but it was darker. GREAT fruit aromas but taste was a bit more on a saison/farmhouse almost sort of flavor. still turned out great. My downfall was the lack of Temperature range i wanted to make it for what I needed. However this Fermented QUICKLY but it was still active long after it was "done" my advise even though its "done" let it sit a bit before kegging/bottling.

Favorite yeast

I can't think of using a better yeast for a hazy, new england IPA. Its super active and if you wanted to, could go from brewing to keeping/bottling in minimal time. Great flavor and perfect flocculation.
