Omega Yeast OYL061 Voss Kveik
Voss Kveik is a proprietary strain that you will not find anywhere else.
A traditional Norwegian "kveik" strain from the farmhouse brewery of Sigmund Gjernes in Voss, Norway, this strain (like OYL-057 HotHead) is capable of fermenting across a broad temperature range with little change in flavor profile.
Voss Kveik is non-phenolic and produces a beer with moderate citrus notes allowing it to pair very well with citrusy and fruity hops. This strain is not fast at the low end of the range so don't be afraid to pitch at temperatures in the middle to upper part of the range. Ferments between 68-98° F.
*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.
This yeast is great and worth the extra cost. Very forgiving wrt temperature, very aggressive fermentation, provides solid additional flavor profile

Excellent. Fermented it in my attic in the middle of a heat wave and it stayed a steady 92 F the entire fermentation. Went perfectly with the standard fruity hops. I’ll use this again next summer.
I Love it....., it starts fast and finishes clean and no weird flavors. I fermented at 75 degrees, next I’ll try 85-90 degrees. I will buy it again.
