Escarpment Labs - Voss Kveik Yeast
Some like it hot, and Voss Kveik yeast is no exception.
Hailing from Voss in Norway, this is not your average yeast. Voss loves to ferment hot, giving off the most aromatic citrus smells this side of an orange grove.
One of the most famous Norwegian Kveik yeasts. This is a single strain selected from Sigmund Gjernes' Voss Kveik. This yeast can ferment at up to 42ºC (Sigmund pitches at 40ºC and free rises from there!) with clean flavours and a prominent citrus aroma. We recommend warm fermentation temperatures (>25ºC), highly fermentable wort and yeast nutrients to ensure complete attenuation. This strain is also very alcohol tolerant and highly flocculent, although it will still produce considerable haze in heavily dry hopped NEIPAs.
|Optimum Fermentation Temp||25-40+°C|
|Alcohol Tolerance||Very High
All liquid yeasts are shipped with a 3oz ice pack.
