Product details

The same shockingly clean Lutra that you love in liquid yeast form is now available in a convenient dry format. Dried Lutra's clean canvas, huge temperature range, high alcohol tolerance and fast finishing speeds means unrivaled flexibility and versatility for nearly any style. For a refreshing pseudo-lager or a huge imperial stout -- for any reason you're using a neutral dry yeast, use Dried Lutra and get more, faster.

Isolated from Omega's Hornindal Kveik (OYL-091) culture, Lutra™ is shockingly clean with unrivaled speed when pitched at 90°F (32°C). The strain is perfect for brewing a refreshing pseudo-lager without the lead time of a lager. Lutra is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones.

After a customer brewed an unusually clean German-style pilsner beer with Hornindal Kveik blend (OYL-091), Omega's R&D lab discovered that one of the strains hidden within the blend, now dubbed Lutra™ Kveik (OYL-071), ferments a wildly clean canvas that can be used for pseudo-lagers, West Coast IPAs or American Stouts.

For the most lager-like profile, we suggest fermenting between 68-72°F.

Yeast Characteristics:

  • Temp Range: 68 - 95°F
  • Attenuation: 75 - 82%
  • Flocculation: Medium-High
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 15%

Fast acting

I used a can of fast pitch with this per the instructions on the can, the fermentation starts very fast and furious. Ends pretty soon too.

This yeast is amazing

Lutra is a yeast that some will say doesn't taste like a lager, but we are homebrewers and if you do not have temp control, use Lutra. Lutra finished slightly drier than a lager yeast would but the beer it makes is amazing and tastes great. Relax and have a homebrew.

Summer just got easier!

You cannot ask for a better yeast for summer fermentation. Especially, if you live in a hot climate. Brew your favorite recipe pitch the Lutra Kveik and forget about it! Temperature control is not a concern with this yeast, it likes it hot!
