    Reusing Kveik yeast

    Lol yea that is how they do it on the farms in Norway . I just love how you can harvest the Kveik so easy. I will never ever have to buy yeast again. And one funny thing is, in say 5 years ahead, i will be using the "same" yeast as i harvested this March. 😀

    Reusing Kveik yeast

    Yes but the Kveik has always been used like this. In Norway the farmers dried the yeast on logs or even sticks. Kveik is really strong

    Reusing Kveik yeast

    I smear it out very thin on a baking paper. Then let it dry with a fan blowing air on it. Normally dries in 5h

    Reusing Kveik yeast

    I always dry a part of my slurry. Then i store the flakes in my freezer. I get around 30g of flakes every batch

    ELI5: Why can’t other yeasts be dried like kveik?

    Kveik has been used like that for hundreds of years in norway. So i guess the yeast just adapted

    Kveik yeast cake

    I recently started to harvest my Kveik. I scoop up some cake and smear it out to dry on some bakingpaper. I get 30g every batch. And every batch i use 8-11g depending on OG. I will never have to buy yeast again 👍

    This yeast is easy to get hold of in sweden.I pitched this earlier today in an IPA OG 1.070.I pitched at 36 Celsius and wrapped a winterjacket around the fermenter.Had to head to work after that and just got back some 9h later.It must have taken off like a rocket.Under the jacket the fermenter...

    Coopers fermentation vessel

    I have the same issue.But i have found its not that big problem after all. Im using S-04 and have found that any trub i get in the bottles drops like concrete to the bottom of my bottles.

    Double can irish stout with 500g lactose yay or any?

    I kinda did this but without the lactose.I got the Cooper Original Stout intended for a 5 gallon batch but did it in my Coopers Craft fermenter (2 gallon) combined with 1kg BE3. Ofcourse it turned out sweet but in a good way.The sweetness is very much like brown sugar.I think im gonna do this...
