Kveik is a Norwegian word meaning yeast. In the Norwegian farmhouse tradition, kveik yeast was preserved by drying and passed from generation to generation. Kveik is the original, traditional dried yeast! It is known for its ability to ferment beer quickly at high temperatures, producing a unique flavor profile with notes of citrus and spice. Kveik yeast has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its versatility and ease of use, making it a popular choice for brewing various styles of beer, including IPAs, stouts and sours. Kveik yeast strains can also tolerate high levels of alcohol and can produce a clean and neutral flavor, allowing the other ingredients in the beer to shine. The LalBrew Voss™ strain of kveik ale yeast supports a wide range of fermentation temperatures, and the flavor profile is consistent across the entire temperature range.
