    Lack of activity

    Welcome! My self, I would wait a week (at least) from when you pitched the yeast. Too early to worry yet as Sammy86 said. Any seal leak will be the place the CO2 escapes rather than the air lock. Cheers, Joel B.

    LALBREW® VOSS KVEIK ALE YEAST

    @stealthfixr In my experience, you used plenty of yeast. I made two 1.080 batches with only 5.5g each. Worked like a champ. Just a thought. Cheers, Joel B.

    LALBREW® VOSS KVEIK ALE YEAST

    @TypicalNerveCell Hehehehe, yep! Fastest starting wort eating monster I have ever seen. It's like time lapse in real time!. @BolgBeorach I guess I didn't notice much if any increase in carb levels on the 2 batches I have done. I did think it carbed a little quicker. But very little dust...

    LALBREW® VOSS KVEIK ALE YEAST

    @TypicalNerveCell I had a 1.080 wort, 5gal in a 6gal Fermonster and it behaved. Close, but no problems. YMMV. Cheers, :mug: Joel B.

    RIS with LalBrew Voss Kveik

    @Stauffbier There are several other threads about this yeast and I don't remember any body speaking of fusels. Also, "I feel" if that was a problem Lallermand wouldn't recommend the temps that they do. That's little consolation, I understand your concerns. Best of luck and please report back if...

    RIS with LalBrew Voss Kveik

    Yeah, It's weird needing to keep heat rather than cooling your wort during the ferment. The first time I used it I didn't use any heat. Pitched @95 and wrapped the fermenter well with a blanket. It only cooled down to 88* when it finished. The Lallermand spec sheet says 95* to 104*F "optimal"...

    Just maybe for a reference. 1.080 wort @95*, 1/2 pack of that yeast dry pitched, active in 3hr., FG 1.011 in 3 days YMMV Cheers, Joel B.

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    @ebbelwoi Hey thanks, I haven't made my mind up100% yet on which way I'll go yet. I laugh at how wound up got over something that if I just would have thought about a little more would have been a non-issue. Any way thanks again for the input. Cheers, Joel B.

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    @NGD Thanks much. It will be my first at a re-pitch also and I was thinking the same amount. Lots of different Kevik's out there. I chose the dry Lallermand because of shipping temps and ferment temps. It's a killer also. A "Quick starting warm wort whipper!" (LOL) Thanks again, Cheers, :mug...

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    The first batch @90F and just wrapped it up in several layers of towels and let it ride and it fell down to 75/78 at the end. (6/7 days) The second batched @95F, heating pad on medium, wrapped and it stayed 95/97 for 4 days. Both 1.080 to .013 & .011 respectively. Probably do the 95* to 100*...

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    @Hoppy2bmerry Thanks for your input. I wish I would not have noticed the pack opened. (LOL) I would have been to the point of no return by now. This is the first "OH Shizz, now what" I have had except for the first time I wished I knew about a blow off setup. (I prep for that on every ferment...

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    It is still granulated. I checked that first thing. Could you give me a quick explantion on that? I am again stupid on some things. Thanks. Joel B.

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    From my measurements 1/2g at the most lost. It's a 5gal batch. 1.060 SG. I have never pitched slury so that's the only thing that had stopped me from trying that. Funny thing is I had thought about pitching the slury first and having the packet of yeast as the back up till I saw it opened. I...

    Punctured package of dry yeast! Help please, ASAP!

    I was going to brew up a batch of beer today. When I'm setting out the supplies I noticed that that the package of Lallermand Kolch yeast has a hole poked in it. I have no idea when it happened. It might have been that way when I got or when I got it out today. It has been in my fridge in a...

    LALBREW® VOSS KVEIK ALE YEAST

    Interested in this. Question, did you oxygenate well? I thought I read somewhere it's important to do so on re-pitching more so than first dry use. Cheers, Joel B.

    Lallemand Voss Kveik on a cream ale, what a monster.

    @Saunassa Yeah, What a deal, I'm the opposite of a hop-head, but,,,, The second time using this yeast (same pack and recipe) somehow the hop character got lost. Never thought I'd say "where's the hops". Bottled today, just a boozy liquid, drinkable but not what the first one was. Two diff's...

    Lallemand Voss Kveik on a cream ale, what a monster.

    @Jayjay1976 For me I used a 6 gal Fermonster @ 5.25. gal. They were OK with just an air lock but it was close. I had my blow off tube set up ready just in case though. In another thread about this yeast somebody said they had blow off but I don't remember if they said any thing about what, if...

    Lallemand Voss Kveik on a cream ale, what a monster.

    Not telling anybody what to do but you only need 1/2 a pack per batch. (5.5g.). It will still chew right through your worts. I've made two 1.080 ish beers and it chomped right through those in 4 days tops. YMMV. Pitched dry/direct on to 95* wort, wrapped in blanket. Started "cooking" in just a...

    LALBREW® VOSS KVEIK ALE YEAST

    @ba-brewer That's what I was wondering too. I wish I would have thought about it before I made this batch I would have tried just that. So far that's the only thing i would call a negative about this yeast. If I have to let it sit for a week or so to clear, it kind-of defeats the speedy...
