60 day no hassle return policy. Details

Omega brings us yet another remarkably unique Norwegian kveik. Hailing from the Terje Raftevold farmstead, Hornindal hits your beer with an intense, tropical flavor along with an aroma of fresh pineapple, mango and tangerine. Needless to say, it pairs perfectly with fruit-forward hops. Don't be shy about taking this yeast to the upper end of its temperature range to intensify the aroma and fermentation speed. Although Hornindal Kviek is highly flocculent, it will impart a slight haze to the finished beer.
Kveik refers to traditional Norwegian farmhouse brewing yeast that has been passed down from one generation to the next, literally being harvested and repitched for centuries. Over this long period of time, kveik developed certain characteristics that distinguish it from modern brewer's yeast. In general, kveik has a very high heat tolerance and will produce a consistent flavor profile across the fermentation temperature range. It's also a fast fermenter, highly flocculent, and has an above average alcohol tolerance.
Attenuation: 75-82%
Flocculation: High
Alocohol Tolerance: 12% ABV
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 70-95°F
Cell Count: 150 Billion

Please Note: For best results we Always recommend ordering an Ice Pack with your liquid yeast. Ice Packs can be found below in the "You might Also Need" section.

Love this yeast for basic pale ales and lighter IPAs
Super fast and clean enough for mildly hoppy beers. Clears nicely using gelatin.

A Beast of a yeast
wow, omega kveik hornidal took my NEIPA from 1.067 to 1.009 in 36 hours at 90F. I will definitely be experimenting more with Kveik. These fast turn around times are a game changer. Great product!

Great for NEIPA
This yeast is a fast worker, even when fermenting in the lower half of its range (started low 80s and finished in the upper 70s under ambient temperatures). Between this yeast and the mosaic and citra hops, pineapple was the dominant flavor.

Worked great for my Brut IPA and Berliner Weisse!
This yeast is amazing. I did a kettle fermentation on my Brut IPA and Berliner Weisse with no off flavors. Pitched at 95F and let it go for 3 days. The Brut IPA finished at 1.000 with the help of amylase and the Berliner Weisse finished at 1.010. This yeast ferments very vigorously at higher temps but, I have heard not to go above 95F or fermentation slows.

Great tropical aroma. I get mango and citrus but, there may be others present.
