    Saison + Kveik Delay Pitch

    Been doing many beers with Kveik yeast lately, specifically been using what was previously "Eastern WA Kveik Blend" from Imperial and is now available as the seasonal "Kveiking." VLike the blend a lot; been using about 1 tsp of slurry per 5.5 gal batch and fermenting ~95-98F. This beer is...

    Brewed my first from scratch recipe

    I brewed my first original recipe today and used Brewers friend to create it. I crushed all the grain myself which was not bad given It was 10.5# of grain. I am using Hornindal Kveik yeast and three different C hops plus balsam tips.

    How do I ferment warm when using kveik yeast?

    Hi HBT! I am quite interested in trying out kveik yeast. It seems to be all the rage. I've read that you should ferment them warm (18 C and up to 39 C or so). My question is this: Normally we want to keep the temperature of the fermentation vessel down - for this I have a temperature controlled...

    Bootleg Biology Aurora Kveik

    Anyone else brewing with Bootleg Biology's new 'Aurora' strain? I bought a pack in their first pre-order for the strain and picked it up the other day. Today, I pitched it--at 95F--into a 1.055 wheat beer wort (made from DME, to skip the trouble of an all-grain brew when testing an unknown...

    Bootleg Biology OSLO

    I would like to start this thread for reports and experience of people using this yeast, according to BB Oslo is an unique Kveik yeast strain that is bottom-fermenting closely related to S. pastorianus, S. uvarum & S. bayanus and ferments at 98F/37C producing a beer that tasted like a nice...

    Voss Kveik

    Hey all! I am looking to build a recipe around some VK that i will have saved after I rack my current raspberry wheat and save it. I have done some reading, and I'm not sure I want to do the full blown juniper berry norweigian farmhouse ale, and I've got some WLP007 that I can do any PA or...

    "Nordic Princess" Raspberry Wheat

    Hello all. I am in the fermentation stage with this beer, despite not having a ton of info on Voss Kveik and the flavors it imparts in wheat beers. I also have not brewed with Raspberries in the past, and would like some advice. Just a bit about brew day- We hit our OG right on the button at...

    Hornindal smells like eggs

    I recently purchased a pack of Omega Hornindal to use on a Kettle sour. I built a large starter to be able to save some of the yeast. The brew came out great so I wanted to do the same thing again. Built my 1.036 1L starter, added 1tsp of slurry and left it on the stir plate @73*. Started seeing...

    Wanting to try something new. Kveik anyone?

    I'm interested in giving one of these stands a try, probably the Voss but I think they all are interesting. I've heard people doing IPAs and such but what about something quite a bit different. Perhaps a Gose or berliner weisse? If anyone has some other experience with kveik strains I'd love to...

    Carbonation level for Kveik

    I'm brewing with kveik for the first time, and while I'm not trying to strictly follow any traditional formula, I was wondering about what typical carbonation levels are for kveik. My understanding is that the Norwegian farmhouse style tends to be pretty low carbonation, or even still. Is there...

    Recipe Critique: Hazyish IPA with Kveik Yeast

    Hey Guys, Here's what I'm thinking for my next brew. Really want to try out Omega Hordnindal yeast due to the fruity esters it gives off. I'm kind of thinking a Trillium Congress Street feel with the Columbus to help balance out the yeast and fruitiness of the Galaxy. Hoping for a fruity, dank...

    Hornindal Kveik is blowing my mind

    I picked this yeast up in the spring and finally got around to brewing with it. I had a double brew session in which I brewed my Allgash-influenced Wit with my Belgian strain and then a Hoppy Session Pale with azacca, equinox & southern cross. Super hot brew day and I was over it by the end of...

    Bottle conditioning highly flocculant yeast (Kveik)

    I'm brewing an IPA using a Hornindal Kveik blend from Escarpment Laboratories. Targeting 6.5-7% ABV. No cold crash (the fermenter won't fit in my fridge). My concern is, this yeast is very high flocculation. In both the package I got from the lab, and the starter I made, the yeast basically...
