Norwegian Kveik Strains

Omega Yeast first became aware of the Norwegian kveik strains via Lars Marius Garshol’s blog where he shared with us not only the history of Norwegian farmhouse brewing but the strains being used to brew traditional Norwegian farmstead beers.

The temperatures they were fermenting at were practically unbelievable — up to, and sometimes exceeding, 100°F! Our thought was that they were either making terrible beer or that these were remarkable strains! After we ran some experiments, we confirmed that these unique strains ferment well at 70°F or 95°F with little difference in ester production.

Additionally, our newly released Hornindal Kveik (OYL-091) produces tropical flavors while our HotHead® (OYL-057) can be used to ferment a cleaner brew. Because of the wide versatility that the Norwegian strains offer, we couldn’t wait to make the strains available to you and now offer three (3) new kveik (“yeast” in Norwegian) strains from the farmsteads of Norway.

Lutra Kveik Helles Pseudo-Lager Recipe

OG — 1.048
FG — 1.008
ABV — 5.2%
IBU — 20




  • Lutra® Kveik Dry Yeast (OYL-071) - 1 x 11g Sachet


  1. Bring 2 gallons (7.6 Litres) of water to boiling in a smaller vessel.
  2. In your mash vessel, bring 6 gallons (19 Litres) of water to 54°C, add grain for a target temperature of 52°C, and leave for 15 minutes.
  3. While stirring, add up to 2 gallons of boiling water until reaching target mash temperature of 64°F. Hold mash temp for 75 minutes. Recirculate mash until wort is free from large amounts of grain.
  4. Drain off wort into boil kettle for approximately 27 litres (sparge as needed for a boil gravity of ~1.043). Boil for 90 minutes, adding hops as noted above.
  5. Pitch yeast as directed. For clarity, fine as desired or cold condition beer at 1°C for 1 – 2 weeks.
  6. Though Lutra Kveik has a wide fermentation temperature range, for the cleanest results, we recommend fermenting in the low 20s Celsius.

Note: The initial protein rest is recommended, but can be skipped if necessary. In this case, add 30 litres of water at 65-66°C to grain for a target mash temperature of 64°C and hold for 75 minutes.
