Product details

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: 11%

I don't know

I did a blind taste, exact same recipe, only diff was yeast using safale us-05 vs Lutra kveik...

Safale won. I was the only one that picked the Omega beer. I liked it better but family and friends preferred good old cheap yeast. Take that how you will.

This yeast is amazing. Drops clear ferments at 68F without any esters or off flavors produced. Nice yeast for a clean, crisp and quick lager or ale.
