Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Kveik, the original, traditional dry beer yeast! Kveik is a Norwegian word meaning yeast. In the Norwegian farmhouse tradition, kveik was preserved by drying and passed from generation to generation. The LalBrew Voss strain was obtained from Sigmund Gjernes (Voss, Norway), who has maintained this culture using traditional methods since the 1980s and generously shared it with the wider brewing community. LalBrew Voss Kveik supports a wide range of fermentation temperatures between 77-104°F with a very high optimal range of 95-104°F. Very fast fermentations are achieved within the optimal temperature range with full attenuation typically achieved within 2-3 days. The flavor profile is consistent across the entire temperature range: neutral with subtle fruity notes of orange and citrus. Flocculation is very high producing clear beers without filtration or use of process aids.

Beer Styles: Norwegian farmhouse ales, neutral ales
Aroma: Relatively neutral at high temps, slight orange and citrus notes
Attenutation: Medium to High
Fermentation Range: 77-104°F (Optimal: 95-104°F)
Flocculation: Very High
Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV

How many grams per gallon at 70°f of the dry voss? And what happens if you over pitch?
William Grabowski on Sep 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The small packs of Lalbrew Voss are meant for 19 liters of beer. Over pitching Voss leads to neutral sensory characteristics.

Yeast Monster
This stuff will chew up your wort in no time at high temps. Give it a healthy amount of yeast nutrient, aerate your wort, and crank up the heat. Leaves a nice subtle spiced orange/orange fruit leather ester profile. Great with citrus hops. This yeast shines in the summer if/when you don't have temperature control.

No fermentation temp control required and this yeast worked fast! Attenuated a NEIPA in just 3 days, finished and drinkable after 5 days post brew day!

The Real Deal
This yeast is as good as they say. I pitched 1 packet directly into a 5 gallon batch with an OG of 1.094 at 94 degrees. Within a few hours it was off and running, forming a thick Krausen. This thing is a workhorse.

Thought I would try this yeast as I have read good things about it. Usually use Nottingham or US-05 for ales.

Good yeast
Used a packed for 7 gal of OG 1.09 traditional mead and took off right away. ran @95F and completed in 6 days. Does floc really hard so needs a daily stir to stay up and active.

Good, fast with nice esters.
Has a great fruity character when used at higher temps, but it's not overpowering. Fast clean fermentation even pitched dry into high gravity worts.

Killer yeast with great power and attenuation.
Fermented exactly as described. I literally saw action in the airlock within 15 minutes of pitching into 90 degree wort. I split the 10 gallon batch as an Amber ale and a Pale ale dry hopped with 3 ounces of Moutere. Both beers came out fantastic. Great attenuation and both beers were kegged in 5 days.
