Escarpment Labs Voss Kveik Blend Liquid Yeast

One of the most famous Norwegian Kveik yeasts. This is a single strain selected from Sigmund Gjernes' Voss Kveik. This yeast can ferment at up to 42ºC (Sigmund pitches at 40ºC and free rises from there!) with clean flavours and a prominent citrus aroma. We recommend warm fermentation temperatures (>25ºC), highly fermentable wort and yeast nutrients to ensure complete attenuation. This strain is also very alcohol tolerant and highly flocculent, although it will still produce considerable haze in heavily dry hopped NEIPAs.
Attenuation: 70-75%
Optimum Temp: 25-40+ºC (!!!)
Alcohol tolerance: Very High
Flocculation: High

Yeast is packaged in 125mL vessels and contains 180-200 billion yeast cells per pitch.

Each pitch is suitable for a 5G batch with an OG up to 1.065. Per usual we always recommend doing a yeast starter.

Escarpment Labs was started in 2013 by three fine fellows in Ontario. Richard Preiss started isolating the yeast strains he used in his homebrewing. This piqued the interest of his labmate Angus Ross - also a homebrewer and beer geek. Soon enough, they were both isolating yeasts from bottles of beer as well as the Ontario wilderness, resulting in a large and diverse strain collection. We now have an expansive collection of both innovative and in-demand yeasts - some available now, with many more in the development pipeline. Nate Ferguson, an instructor at the Niagara College Brewmaster Program, has since joined the team, his technical expertise in all things beer and yeast helping us to produce high-quality cultures on an industrial scale.
