Kveik yeast
Sam McNeil from Lawrence Beer Co.
  • Clark Winter Warmer -- Wanted to do a Winter Warmer, and had a short lead time, so worked with Kveik.
  • Kveik yeasts are very temperature tolerant. Actually, they are tolerant of lots of environmental variables. Remarkable because they can work from 65 to 105 degrees.
  • Bonus for homebrewers because you don’t need a lot of process or equipment for temperature control -- with Kveik yeast, you don’t have to do that.
  • Ester profiles are stable across the temperature range, so it won’t change your flavors if you ferment at different temperatures.
  • Kveik yeasts are non-phenolic and low fusel alcohol producing.
TASTING – Spring Fruits

Strawberry Beers
