Omega Yeast OYL-071 Lutra™ Kveik
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.
- Temp Range: 68 - 95°F
- Attenuation: 75 - 82%
- Flocculation: Medium-High
- Alcohol Tolerance: 11%

I really like the way this yeast works. Whats really nice is that you can let the beer sit without a secondary fermenter. The flavor DOES mimic Lager. I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 because this particular kit makes a beer that is lite. I prefer a heavier beer with more malty and hop flavor. But, I will certainly try this yeast again with more malt and hops!
Makes a great lager beer!
Great light beer with just enough flavor to step up from your basic lager. Fantastic for your friends who are trying to cut down on those IPA beers. Mine is 4.5 percent ABV and perfect. A great lawn mowing beer.
use a blowoff pipe, this stuff took right off. havn't tasted it yet. T
Used in a kolsch recipe and it left a little residual sweetness and a very clean and crisp flavor. Mash was Pilsner grain with saaz hops. Highly recommend this yeast
