Description

Lutra is a shockingly clean strain that takes off at warp speed when pitched at the high end of its temperature range.

Lutra is your worry-free way to navigate the evolving demand for cold ones. You will love this strain like no otter.

Also available as a gluten-free strain!

I am created a “house yeast”, and this is part of it (finally making more after about 20 batches).

Ferments clean at room temp and drops clear
Tried to see what this would do for a West Coast IPA. Pitched at 78, finished fermenting in about 4 days. Kicked it up to 85 for 3 day diacetyl rest. The beer is crystal clear without cold crashing or finings. Very clean and lets the hops shine through. No more temp control for me!

Quick Start at 72F.
I purchased Lutra Kveik to make Pseudo Lagers. The first brew was a Pseudo Helles. My OG was 1.047 and was estimated the apparent attenuation at 79% for a FG of 1.010. My actual apparent attenuation was 89% for a FG of 1.005. I fermented at 72F for seven days. There was activity in the blow off tube in 4 hours. I am going to cold crash for a week then into the bottles.

Not sure if something happened to the yeast during shipping, but got a stuck ferm at 50%. Tried to boost with more nutrient and after 8 days had no result.

Amazingly fast at high temps
Holy crap this stuff is fas at high temp! Pitched it at 68F for a pseudo-lager that took about a week but finished super clean. But, Racked a stout onto the yeast cake and set at 90F. Went from 1.075 to 1.012 in 24 hours!

Exactly like the description
With two weeks in a Carboy and two in a keg, it still has a little chill haze. Light American lager is not my favorite by far but it’s what I was trying to make. The crisp and light taste with low body fermented between 70 and 80 degrees F. even with a 6% abv beer.

Arrived as promised
Yeast arrived as promised, hope to up date my review once I have time to try it.
I think Covid created the delivery to be delayed, item arrived warmer than expected with ice pack. Hope it did not effect the yeast.

A fine, neutral, fast yeast!
I bought this yeast after having used the strain in several previous brews. I used it in an American Strong Ale to let the hop and grain flavors shine through, and I combined it with some Belle Saison to add a Belgian twang. 10 days, grain to glass, and it worked admirably.

Make a lager without the traditional lager pain
Trying Lutra for the first time, making a Marzen lager. Wow! Fermented at 80F and was done after several days! It's kegged and will condition for a few weeks. Taste test at kegging: No off flavors, seems to be real clean. Can't wait for the first pour.
