    Omega Yeast LabsOYL061Voss 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 be afraid to pitch at temperatures in the middle to upper part of the range. Ferments between 68-98° F.


Yeast is actually WLP518, Opshaug Kveik, not an option. Will ferment warm and see how it turns out.

Ferm temp was high 80's - low 90's. Beer turned out quite clean, a bit of fruitiness, no off characters. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Percieved bitterness was slightly lower than calculated, which was more to style.
