Omega Yeast OYL057 HotHead Ale - Kveik Strain
A highly flocculent Norwegian kveik ale strain that has an astoundingly wide temperature range (62F-98F) with little difference in flavor profile across the whole range. Temperature control is unnecessary with this strain. It has a unique fruitiness that makes it complementary to modern hop varieties. This just may be the perfect yeast for warmer climates or those hot summer months. Hothead is a proprietary strain that you will not find anywhere else. Non-phenolic and no fusels, even at higher temperatures.
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.
We keep our house at 80 in the summer so other yeast fizzle out quickly. The Kveik kept on perking. Ralph's Red turned out fantastic!
This stuff is a monster

Great yeast, worked well for me as my apt. is always 79 or 80 degrees.
Got warm in transit but still ran well. Fast fermenter.
