Espe Kveik from Omega offers a unique flavor profile of lychee, pear, and tropical fruit cup. It can bolster the sweet aromatics of modern IPAs, but is versatile enough for your house pale ale or exotic seasonal brews. Espe is traced back to the village of Grodås in Norway and has an exceptionally wide fermentation temperature range. It's most expressive when fermented at or above 90°F, but you'll still pick up its character when fermented at lower ale fermentation temps.

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.

My new secondary yeast!
This stuff is amazing... 100% my new go-to yeast when the fermentation chamber is full!

Did a simple pale ale only using neutral bittering hops, fermented at 80-85F, and a few friends thought it was a shandy or tropical IPA.
