From: Imperial Yeast
Type: Kveik Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Single isolate kveik known to produce huge tropical ester profile. After years of surviving in cold climates, this Kveik yeast is ready for the tropical lifestyle. When used at high temperatures, POG produces an extreme amount of tropical fruit aromas including pineapple and guava. At the lower end of the range, more delicate citrus, peach and kiwi aromas are noticeable. The beer style options are expansive for this yeast. Use it in a hazy/juicy IPA to complement the hops or use it in a sour fruited beer to maximize the extreme aromatics. POG likes to work fast at high fermentation temperatures. It is also strongly flocculent, which makes it great for a fast turnaround. This strain has demonstrated the need for higher wort dissolved oxygen (DO) levels than most ale strains. Target 20 ppm DO or set the oxygen regulator flow to ~50 higher than normal.

Brewing Properties of POG
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
