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.
